Oklahoma Celebrates CareerTech Education Month in February
The seven 2016 Oklahoma presidents for Oklahoma CareerTech student organizations led their state officer teams in learning about the legislative process during CTSO Day at the Capitol.
The Oklahoma Department of CareerTech partnered with Oklahoma CareerTech student organizations to kick off CareerTech Education Month with CTSO Day at the Capitol.
The seven CTSO officer teams met at the state Capitol Feb. 2 to talk to their legislators and distribute booklets ODCTE created highlighting CTSO students and their teachers. "Making A Difference -- Oklahoma CareerTech" featured a champion from each of the seven CTSOs and the teachers of each student explaining why they teach. The seven student/teacher stories can also be found on our website at http://www.okcareertech.org/educators/why-i-teach/why-i-teach.
In addition, Oklahoma CareerTech technology centers are celebrating CareerTech Education month with social media posts, sophomore Tech Fest and Showcase events for their partner high schools, professional development opportunities for their partner high schools, community luncheons and recognition programs, press releases and fun activities for students and staff and faculty members.
