Filosofía política

All students can succeed given tailored, equitable educational opportunities. While every student may not attend college, every student still needs the foundation of college prep courses to provide to develop the skill sets to be competitive in the 21st century global marketplace. For those choosing not to attend college, we owe them quality career technical education programs to prepare students for high demand careers with a depth of learning and first hand experience that builds real-world skills so that students graduate ready for a job, certification or technical school.
