Governor Ralph Northam recently announced $600,000 in competitive grants to help schools upgrade equipment for their career and technical education programs. CATEC was one of 16 Virginia high schools and technical centers to receive $37,500 to purchase new equipment and to make other necessary improvements.
“These grants will allow students to experience and explore 21st-century career and technical programs and provide valuable opportunities to learn on up-to-date technical equipment,” said Governor Northam. “This is a great step forward in our mission to train Virginia workers for the good jobs that are available now and build an economy that works for every family in every corner of the Commonwealth.”
“We have long recognized the value of CTE programs in providing our students with knowledge and skills to prepare them to be career-ready,” said Acting State Superintendent of Public Instruction Steven M. Constantino.
