Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs are meant to give high school students practical skills that will help them as they enter the job force. These skills may be welding, woodworking, computer programming and design, agricultural education, and more.
In recent years, some schools have struggled to keep CTE programs around and provide programs with adequate teachers. Sutherlin High School doesn’t have this problem however. Our CTE program happens to be one of the best in the state. In fact, for the past two summers, teachers from around Oregon have come to Sutherlin High School to take a week long course taught by Mr. Gary (Woodshop teacher) and Mr. Crawford (Metals and Ag Teacher). The course is meant to help inexperienced teachers with welding and woodworking skills. It has been incredibly successful.
