New Navigation

New Customer-centered navigation puts the focus on helping you, the visitor, find content easier.

We are making efforts to organize content under major sections according to primary customers:

  • Students - Students of all ages looking to find out what the CareerTech Education system offers to them can find it in this section, along with other career planning resources.
  • Educators - Teachers, Instructors and Administrators can find information and resources in this section either by the educational area or career cluster.
  • Business and Industry - Businesses of all kinds, whether a large corporation or small start-up, will find how to develop your workforce and customized training met the new pressing demands of today.
  • About - Learn about the Career and Technology Education system, its essential delivery arms, its history, and what it can do for you. This section has general information and includes links to the CareerTech state agency pages.




Where did the old navigation ways go?

Everything was organized according the State Agency's Divisional structure before.  Division areas are still available, but only for information about the State Agency Divison.  These divisions now oversee the content and resources for the customers under the customer sections in the Global Navigation Bar Links:

Our goal is to provide content directly under the primary customer sections, eliminating the need for you to know any unusual departmental naming conventions to find content relevant to you.

You may have been used to clicking a main banner link to some highlighted area or section of the site, here's where those links will reside and be updated at:
