March CDC News

March 1, 2016

Welcome to the first-ever CDC Principal’s blog!

The Career Development Center is very active and busy in providing students in the St. Vrain Valley School District with Career Pathway opportunities in Career and Technical Education.  Statewide, we are 1 of 8 Career and Technical Centers in Colorado.  Here are some quick facts about CDC:

  • We offer 10 CTE programs.

  • Concurrent credit is offered in one of our programs (Multimedia) this year.  At least two more programs will offer concurrent credit for 2016-2017.

  • Seven of our programs offer industry certificates.

  • All of the programs offer leadership opportunities through their Career and Technical Student Organization (CTSO’s).

  • All of our courses offer hands-on learning!

Upcoming events and activities include:

  • March 3 - 5:  The HOSA (Health Occupations Students of America) state conference.  Leigh Levesque, CDC Health Careers Instructor will be accompanying Fernando Velasco Ramirez (Niwot High)  who scored high enough in the pre-test for KT Nutrition and Healthy Lifestyle.

  • March 10:  The Spring Manufacturing Field Trip.  This is such a great opportunity for all CDC students to explore the careers and opportunities available in this career pathway.

  • April 6 - 8:  The Skills State Conference (CTSO for Welding, Auto, Cosmetology & Engineering).
