DCTC / CTE

The Downriver Career Technical Consortium (DCTC) was founded 40 years ago as a way for three local school districts to share vocational education programs.
Over the years, the DCTC has grown and adapted to meet the ever changing needs of our evolving world.  The DCTC now consists of 10 local school districts that share 24 programs. 

Why Career-Technical Education (CTE) ?
The objective of a career technical class is to provide a very sophisticated training experience for the student while they are still in high school, so upon graduation they might directly enter the labor market or continue on for advanced training in the chosen career area.  Toward this end, the career technical programs have adopted the curriculum developed by the State of Michigan, which provides for training that has been identified as being necessary for each specific occupational area.
