School programs offered in career education

Carroll County public schools offer career and technology education programs in business, agriscience, marketing, allied health, trade, industrial and technical education, family and consumer sciences and technology education for high school students.

Some programs are offered at the high schools. Others are available only at the Carroll County Career and Technology Center or South Carroll High School technology center.

Students may enroll in grades 11, 12 or both in the centers' competency-based programs if they meet prerequisites for the courses. Students taking programs at the centers are enrolled concurrently in their home schools so that they can complete graduation requirements and participate in extracurricular activities.

School bus transportation is provided for students between home schools and the technology centers.

A support service team is available for disadvantaged and handicapped students who need additional assistance. For details about programs, contact the guidance office at each high school.

A local application for career and technology education programs has been prepared and submitted to the Maryland State Department of Education for approval. The application is available for review and comment by the public.
