Dear Parents and Students, Welcome to the BCTEA website. The purpose of this website is to provide valuable information to assist parents and students as they plan their student’s high school and post-secondary course of study. It is my hope that the information on our website will not only assist students as they choose electives they will enjoy, but will also encourage them to set goals that will ensure success in their chosen career path. Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs in the Hurst-Euless-Bedford Independent School District provide an array of opportunities for students. The curriculum and instruction is designed to give students “hands on” real world applications and relevant learning. In the high tech world of today, the student’s use of existing and emerging technologies is a critical part of their education. Please feel free to contact me for more information about the CTE programs in the Hurst-Euless-Bedford Independent School District. My best wishes with your educational and career pursuits. Sincerely, Lisa Karr Director of Career and Technical Education
