Salem officials say vocational center needs a new name
Even though career and technical education is a fairly commonly used term, Delahanty said there is still the perception among some of the interchangeability of career and technical education and vocational school.
Since the center was built in 1987, Delahanty said there has been a substantial evolution toward a more career and technical education approach.
“CTE is more focused on college and career readiness, versus preparing students for work readiness right out of high school,” said Dodge. “We are just keeping up with the times with the name change, and it aligns with what the rest of the CTE world is doing.”
“Considering that the School Board members and people in education already refer to it as a career and technical education center, I think it is only appropriate to make this change,” said board member Pamela Berry.
“One benefit of the name change is that we could use (state) CTE funds to establish a sign that is more appropriate,” he said.
