Connecting Learning to Earning
Career & Technical Education (CTE) courses are offered in grades 7-12 and focus on preparing students with professional training in a variety of career fields. Students develop an understanding of the importance of work and how performance, efforts, and decision making directly affect future educational and career opportunities. Students are trained in basic workplace skills as well as specific technical proficiencies in wide variety of career pathways.
Career & Technical Education courses provide innovative educational opportunities within the Marysville School District. Students are engaged in learning and excited about the opportunity to experience focused course work that allows them to excel in an area of interest. Students who participate in CTE courses are being prepared to enter a highly competitive workforce based on a global knowledge and information economy.
Students who are career and college ready need to be able to compete in this every changing workforce and have marketable skills that put them ahead of others. CTE offers these skills in a rigorous, hands-on, project based learning environment. CTE courses also offer embedded core academics which allow students to complete their high school graduation requirements more efficiently. CTE courses are aligned to Washington State teaching standards and offer high school as well as college credit in many areas. Instruction is provided by highly trained educators who are experts in their field of study.
Alaska Airlines Imagine Tomorrow challenges 9th through 12th graders to seek new ways to support the transition to sustainability. Students research complex topics related to sustainability, then innovate technologies, designs, or plans to mobilize behavior. They forge connections in their communities and create positive change. In this competition, as in life, solutions are limited only by imagination.
We will be sending 7 students to compete in the competition

Today we're thankful we don't have to look far to find kindness and giving. Arts and Technology High School's Computer Repair Lab, run by Mr. Paul LaGrange, doesn't just fix computers. Along with his students, Mr. LaGrange helps provide an important 21st century resource to those who need it. From schools in Tanzania, to senior citizens in our community, their efforts make a real impact on people's lives at home and abroad!
On Veterans Day, Marysville Rotary 5050 brought together many in our community for their 2016 Auction. The money raised at this auction will go toward scholarships for graduating Marysville students, as well as other projects supporting Marysville, Tulalip and #MSD25. It was a huge success thanks to the hard work of the Marysville Navy Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps! A big thanks to these students and their instructors for their time and commitment!
