To promote its Career and Technical Education programs, the district hosted a CTE Expo at each of the five school buildings from Jan. 9-13.
Students in grades 8-10 were invited to attend the expos to learn about the district’s eight CTE programs; A+ Computer Networking, Architecture Technology, Automotive Technology, Construction Trades, Cosmetology, Culinary Arts, Digital Animation and Game Design, and Pre-Engineering.
Student ambassadors were present at the expos to speak about their respective programs to the younger students and provide demonstrations. According to Director of CTE Dr. Patrick J. Dunphy Jr., many new applicants learn about the programs through the expo that visits their school building.
CTE offers students pathways toward technical endorsements and program-specific credentials, as well as the potential for college credit. Sewanhaka High School serves as the main campus of the program, and the district provides buses for students from Elmont Memorial, Floral Park Memorial, H. Frank Carey and New Hyde Park Memorial high schools.
