Tuesday, January 15 was a big day for CTE in the news and at the Capitol! CACTE member Eric Ward testified in support of HB 19-1008 before the House Education Committee. The bill addresses including CTE new facilities/equipment in the use of BEST funds.
And CACTE members Scott Burke, instructor, and Shelley Goerdt, Jeffco CTE Coordinator, made a News 4 Denver story happen with about 3 hours notice! News 4 Political reporter, Shaun Boyd wanted to visit a Skilled Trades class as she was covering HB 19-1008. CACTE connected her to the Geometry in Construction class at Green Mountain High School. Scott’s students did a fabulous job of illustrating why #CTE works wonders, talking about the specific and transferable skills they are learning by building a house for Habitat for Humanity!

Way to go, Colorado ACTE!
