New school year to be Hamilton CTE Center’s last

August 9, 2018 by  

Hamilton City Schools has stood alone among Butler County’s public school systems in having its own career education center for many years, but this school year will be the last for The Career Tech Education Center (CTE).

Since the 1950s, CTE has offered career training programs to Hamilton High School students. Starting next school year, the city’s school system will partner with Butler Tech career schools, which is one of Ohio’s largest career school programs. Butler Tech is engaged in more business partnerships, job training programs, learning facilities, and resources than any single school system such as Hamilton.

With locations scattered throughout the county, Butler Tech offers career programs for adults as well as high school students. It is likely that with the help of a brochure printing service, the various career programs and their requirement will be laid out for the local community.

Hamilton High School students will be able to apply to career instructional programs before August 2019. The current school year at Hamilton will a transitional one. Collaborative planning is taking place so that school officials can make good on its promise to students already in the program that their career training will continue seamlessly.

The majority of Career Technology pathways take two-years to complete, as well as mandating courses to be taken in a specific sequence to meet certification or accreditation requirements.
