Career & Technical Education

CTE logo

The South Dakota Department of Education has reorganized the Division of Career & Technical Education and will be transitioning to a new regional outreach model over the coming months.

In the past, career cluster specialists have worked with school districts across the state in specific content areas. With this new regional outreach model, regional specialists will now focus on specific regions of the state, serving as a resource for all local CTE related efforts and promoting a systems approach to career and technical education. This regional focus will give school districts access to consistent and efficient resources within the Division of Career & Technical Education.
