Students have the opportunity to participate in extended learning activities through CTE programs in a variety of ways. Many students choose to engage in leadership development projects through Career and Technical Education Student Organizations (CTSO’s) and other related clubs. School-based enterprises such as the student store, work-based/worksite learning, internships, job shadows, and community service projects also support student learning and application.
CTE students are exposed to and participate in community events through community service organizations, monthly business connections with the Chamber of Commerce, City of Renton, as well as local and State legislative processes. The professional connections made by CTE students helps to support the learning while in high school, with transitional activities upon graduation, and pays dividends during post-secondary experiences.
