Celebrate CTE Month by Talking with your Kids about Careers

February is National Career & Technical Education (CTE) Month, and we would like to invite all our families and mentors of our students to engage in meaningful conversations at home about vocations. Whether it be about traditional careers, service in the military, religious life, or something entrepreneurial; we know it is beneficial to begin conversations early and frequently. Research indicates that active family/mentor engagement has a direct positive influence on a students career readiness. 

The mission of Norfolk Public Schools is to prepare all students to pursue their goals for the future. So, what are your child’s goals? 

The Nebraska Department of Education has created an incredibly valuable resource called “Family & Mentor Conversation Starters about Nebraska Career Readiness Standards” that we recommend our families take a look at and use to reinforce career readiness at home. 

A link to this resource can be found below.
