Career and Technical Education

FISD Career & Technical Education Programs reinforce state and national academic standards, link to business and industry, offer career development activities, provide ability to earn certifications, prepare students for challenges on higher education & a global, competitive workplace, and provide rigorous instruction through hands-on problem solving projects.
