Tulsa Public Schools currently has 5 divisions of CTE that our students are able to take classes to better educate themselves and prepare for their careers:
Family and Consumer Sciences (FACS)
Family and Consumer Sciences Education (FCS) helps prepare students for family life, work life, and careers in family and consumer sciences by providing opportunities to develop the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and behaviors needed through character development, creative and critical thinking, interpersonal communication, practical knowledge, and career preparation.
Business, Marketing & Information Technology Education (BMITE)
Careers in the business cluster involve planning, oversight, and organizational tasks needed to run a business. Careers in the information technology cluster involve working with computer hardware, software, or network systems. Careers in the marketing cluster involve promoting and selling products and services.
Through Business Professionals of America and DECA, the CareerTech student organizations affiliated with BMITE, students gain necessary skills to compete in the marketplace by accepting the responsibility of success and the challenge of learning.
Science, Technology, Engineering & Math (STEM)
STEM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines — science, technology, engineering and mathematics — in an interdisciplinary and applied approach. Rather than teach the four disciplines as separate and discrete subjects, STEM integrates them into a cohesive learning paradigm based on real-world applications.
Careers in the STEM cluster involve solving problems through research and design.
These programs prepare students for careers in production agriculture, agribusiness and other emerging agricultural-related occupations. The CareerTech student organization affiliated with Agricultural Education is FFA.
