Roanoke Rapids Graded School District (RRGSD) is committed to providing students with the academic and technical skills necessary to prepare them for further education and careers. The district’s Career and Technical Education (CTE) program serves students in grades 6-12 as part of a comprehensive program providing career exploration, career planning, skill development, and preparation for future education. RRGSD CTE programs are designed to provide life and career preparation skills as students determine whether to enter the workforce, seek professional certifications, or continue into postsecondary education. The focus is to provide rigorous and relevant opportunities in a variety of subject areas so each student can explore various program areas to determine what career path best meets his/her interests and skill set. Emphasis is placed on lifelong learning, critical thinking, and problem solving, with the intent to produce globally competitive students. The North Carolina Essential Standards provide the curricula for all Career and Technical Education courses and community and industry stakeholder input is obtained through bi-annual meetings with the Roanoke Rapids Graded School District’s Career and Technical Education Advisory Council.
