The Brazosport ISD Career and Technical Education  department is committed to offering programs that prepare students for careers in a variety of fields by providing them with hands-on learning experiences, as well as industry-based certifications that students will be able to utilize beyond high school. This year was no exception as BISD has continued to expand and grow those opportunities for its students. By the end of the 2017-2018 school year, over 700 BISD students earned over 1,300 CTE certifications, compared to the 600 certifications earned last year.

“Because of  the passion and encouragement from teachers, along with the commitment and dedication from students, and our community partnership supports, more students will graduate from BISD with real world credentials and be future ready,” said Superintendent Danny Massey.

From areas such as agriculture, to health science, to STEM (science, technology, engineering, math), BISD offers numerous hands-on opportunities for students to find their areas of interest, and ultimately discover what type of career they might want to pursue. Achieving certification in an area of interest places a student an additional step ahead of competitors and their future career.
