    Career and Technical Education (CTE)

    Pflugerville ISD Career and Technical Education provide career and postsecondary preparation for over 8,000 students across the District with CTE programming in all four comprehensive high schools and the six middle schools. Students can explore careers in fourteen of the sixteen national career clusters including Health Science, Engineering, Automotive Technology, Agriculture, Information Technology and more!

    Our programs provide students with opportunities to engage with industry experts and/or simulate industry environments while building academic and technical skills, including employability skills. One way we connect students to our local business community is through the REAL World Pflugerville Career Connection event. Hosted in the early spring semester businesses are invited to set up a display and share with small groups of students more about their organization and preparing for success in the industry. 

    As there continues to be an increased need for employees in many industries in our region it is the goal of the PfISD CTE team to implement programs that are developed through collaboration with postsecondary and industry partners so that all students graduate ready for their next steps and employers have a work-ready pool of candidates, right here in central Texas.

     

    The Mission

    To develop partnerships and programs providing each student with the skills and knowledge to excel in a diverse, global society for lifelong success.

     

    The Vision

    The vision of the PISD Career and Technical Education program is to provide a comprehensive program that will give students the opportunity to excel and advance their skills and knowledge to be prepared for post-secondary endeavors through rigorous curriculum, relevant experiences, and lasting relationships
