CTE FAST FACTS

Lamar CISD offers 20 different programs of study, which all end in an opportunity for students to gain an industry-based certification.​

  • Various high school campuses do not offer some of these programs due to the lack of facilities.

Lamar CISD partners with TSTC to offer CTE dual credit courses in HVAC, Welding, Cybersecurity, Automotive Technology, & Diesel Equipment Technology.

  • A small percentage of our students can take advantage of this opportunity due to TSTC courses not operating within a traditional school day schedule, and we do not have the facilities to provide most of these courses on our own high school campuses.​

All of our programs of study end with a Practicum course, which provides students with an opportunity to gain real-world experience in their field of choice.

  • These courses are in limited quantity, which creates scheduling conflicts for students when they must choose between these courses and others. Due to this dilemma, there is a lack of CTE completers throughout our programs of study. ​
