Career and Technical Education

Career and Technical Education (CTE) provides students with academic and technical skills to compete in the global workforce and/or to continue their education at the post-secondary level after graduation.  CTE is an essential component of the total educational program at Pleasanton ISD. CTE is provided in a variety of settings and levels including junior high  and high school for high school and  post-secondary credits, certifications, and degrees, and training for employees in the workplace. There are a variety of courses provided at Pleasanton High School with comprehensive career concentrations approved by Texas Education Agency.  Please see the below handbook for more details on what is available.


Career and Technical Education not only jump starts students' careers by preparing them for jobs while still in high school, CTE fosters confidence and self- assurance for their future endeavors. All students receive guidance on utilizing CTE programs to prepare them for post-secondary readiness.
