This CTE Month, one of the best things you can do to celebrate the accomplishments of your students is to hold a school visit or site visit. For this visit, you can invite policymakers, business leaders, members of the media, or other members of your local community to visit your programs and discover the 21st century learning that happens in CTE classrooms every day. By organizing a visit, you can raise awareness of CTE and advance public understanding of the opportunities that CTE offers for students.
