Technology Education and Skilled Trades Department Overview

Technology Education and Skilled Trades provides students with opportunities for problem solving, designing, creating, and addressing current trends and issues. Students use and study technology to create practical solutions to problems - individually or in groups - to develop technological skills, knowledge, and work ethics.

Technology Education enables students to explore their ideas, gain practical experiences, and work through thinking processes in a safe and supportive environment. Technology Education allows learners to evaluate their strengths and interests in career choices. It also reflects rapid changes in the workplace and allows students to make informed decisions about their futures while providing a foundation of skills that enable high school students to be gainfully employed after graduation–either full-time or while continuing their education or training.
