• Career Development

    Our Career and Technical Education (CTE) program aims to prepare students for employment opportunities, advanced education and productive lives. CTE promotes best practices that enhance teachers' efforts to improve student achievement and encourage responsible career choices. We want to meet students' needs, cultivate their abilities and help them realize their aspirations.

    Middle school students are offered exploratory courses in business and information technologies, life skills, technology systems and career decisions. Each middle school has a Career Development Coordinator to support the school-to-career connection and facilitate business alliance activities.

    Hi, I'm Ms. Bass and I am excited about being the Career Development Coordinator for Hilburn Academy. Middle school students are offered exploratory courses in technology and engineering systems and are introduced to career decisions. I believe great things happen when students can make school-to-work connections. 

    As your CDC, I am here to assist students with career planning & exploration. It is my goal to help students make informed & thoughtful decisions about their future. I am looking forward to collaborating with the students, parents, educators and businesses in our community. Together we can prepare our children to be productive citizens to function in a global society.
