  • Saint Paul Public Schools supports Career and Technical Education (CTE) teachers in the areas of Agriculture, Business, Family & Consumer Science, Education, Communications & Technology, Construction, Manufacturing, Medical, Automotive/Transportation, and Work Based Learning. CTE teachers come from a variety of educational backgrounds. CTE teachers are passionate about bringing industry and career experiences to the classroom while teaching the skills necessary to support students toward their post-secondary career goals. CTE teachers are focused on equity, academic achievement, social emotional learning, career & college readiness and alignment with the Carl D. Perkins State and Federal goals.

    CTE programs and courses are an integral part of SPPS Career Pathways and help lead the way to ensure pathways are relevant to our community, high-wage and in-demand and always teaching with the highest industry standard equipment.
