We hope you will use these resources and links to promote and support your CTE programs.

The mission of the Education Service Center Region 2 CTE Department is to support and promote successful Career & Technical Education programs. We believe that Career & Technical Education is the cornerstone of the educational experience for students because it allows them to "put their hands on the learning" that they do in their other classes.
