CTE in the Mountain State

West Virginia State Fact Sheet     ACTE compiles relevant state-based CTE information in our State fact sheets. At the secondary level, CTE is delivered through comprehensive high schools; county CTE centers, which are secondary schools that provide supplemental CTE programs to students from sending high schools within the county; and multi-county CTE centers. At the postsecondary level, CTE is delivered through the state’s community and technical colleges. County CTE centers also provide postsecondary CTE instruction. To learn more, read the West Virginia state fact sheet.

Letter from the State Association Liaison

Greetings from ACTE!

As a leader and professional in your state for Career and Technical Education, I would like to take a brief moment to introduce myself and offer my assistance on behalf of the Association for Career and Technical Education (ACTE).

My name is Mike Woods and I represent ACTE as the State Association Liaison for Region I to help assist the fifteen (15) states in Region I with leadership development, membership, and legislative advocacy from ACTE national. Essentially, I am our team’s ‘boots on the ground’ and travel throughout the region to serve as an educational consultant and resource to ACTE state leadership and their membership.

Aside from providing support, my goals are also to rejuvenate and revitalize state ACTE associations facing hardships and obstacles, in addition to re-establishing inactive state associations throughout Region I. If you could use assistance in this manner I would be happy to help you through this process.

Please do not hesitate to contact me via e-mail or telephone if you and your state need any support from ACTE national. I strive to be a readily available resource who is here and happy to help.

I look forward to connecting with state leaders and members while attending your state conferences and meetings throughout Region I.
