Technology Centers That Work

Overview

Technology Centers That Work

Technology centers, technical centers, career centers, and career and technical education (CTE) centers all have a common purpose: to provide high-quality CTE studies to high school students. Students may attend these centers for only a portion of the school day, week or year, or they may attend full time, receiving both academic and technical instruction at the center. 

SREB provides member sites with staff development, technical assistance, publications and assessment services. TCTW sites participate in the biennial HSTW Assessment and the TCTW Teacher Survey, designed specifically for teachers in shared-time centers.
