2020 CTE Summer Program Cancelled

It is with deep regret that the Kentucky Association for Career and Technical Education (KACTE) and the Kentucky Department of Education-Office of Career and Technical Education and Student Transition (OCTEST) announce the 2020 Career and Technical Education (CTE) Summer Program scheduled for July 26-29 at the Galt House in Louisville is cancelled. However, teacher and administrator CTE professional development will be available during late summer.

Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) travel restrictions and concern for the health and safety of attendees made it impossible to hold a traditional CTE Summer Program. In lieu of a traditional event, OCTEST will present a virtual experience to deliver to teachers and administrators the critical professional development needed to maintain high-quality and relevant CTE for students.

Please await communication from OCTEST leadership and CTE program consultants on the presentations that will be available and how the presentations will be delivered.

THANK YOU for your commitment to CTE and your patience as the various conferencing options were researched and considered.
