Career and Technical Education
Career and technical education (CTE) equips students for today’s in-demand careers, expanding academic content into hands-on context and teaching students workplace competencies.
Modern CTE, unlike vocational schools of years past, is expansive and covers multiple industries. Be it automotive repair, healthcare services delivery, theater arts production or computer science training or sustainable agriculture programs for sustainable agriculture; career and technical programs provide employers with skills that employers are seeking.
Though some still hold to the belief that career-tech education (CTE) is inferior to traditional academics, studies show that students who take on challenging CTE pathways tend to out-perform their peers and even find jobs that pay better compared to college graduates who also pursued career-tech ed courses. Proof is in the numbers — over 12 million high school and college students nationwide are currently enrolled in CTE courses across America; these students are more likely to graduate high school, become employed or self-employed post-graduation — all compelling reasons for every student to find what pathway best fits them as soon as possible!
Student recruitment is an integral component of any institution’s long-term plan and requires careful consideration and adaptability to student needs. Recruitment the appropriate number of students is vitally important to its sustainability and the primary function of admissions offices.
Recruitment of new students can be time consuming and requires support from multiple departments. Implementing an effective recruiting strategy will help maximize your budget when recruiting new students.
One way to save time and improve the student experience is through online communication tools such as forums or chatrooms, which allow potential students to contact you quickly with any inquiries from prospective students. It may also help ensure any questions are answered promptly or any concerns addressed immediately, while hosting physical or virtual open houses provides students the chance to experience your school first-hand; Gen Z students rank face-to-face interactions highly as communication channels.
Extended Day Program
The FBISD Extended Day Program offers parents and students three options for Early Dismissal/Full Service programs – morning, afternoon, or early dismissal/full service – providing them with a safe environment on their home campus where they can learn, play, and develop.
Children will enjoy daily homework time and snack, working alongside trained teachers who are on-hand to address any queries or challenges they might be having. Once homework has been completed, children can browse our lending library before participating in age-appropriate centers to engage them further. Twice every month (depending on campus), clubs related to a monthly theme will meet for participation – subjects vary accordingly.
EDP provides children with an engaging learning environment before and after school that supports their safety and fun. Through its curriculum and learning-based activities, this program serves the District’s goal to inspire all its students towards bright futures that extend far beyond anything imagined.
The District’s IT department provides technology support services at all campuses and administration locations, including deployment, diagnosis, repair and upgrade support for organizational computer systems and desktop hardware as well as optimal workstation performance monitoring for all staff. In cases of urgent assistance via phone or email the district help desk should be reached directly for escalation assistance.
FBISD’s Administration Building can be found in Sugar Land near Town Square and First Colony Mall. With capacity for 845 students, it serves as home to both administrative staff as well as classrooms, two gymnasiums and a large meeting room.
