Career and Technology Studies or CTS is a strategy developed by the Prairie Rose School Division to enable students in small rural high schools to access technical/vocational options.

CTS optimizes learning opportunities for students by combining the resources of both school and community to create flexible individualized programming. CTS aligns curricular outcomes from school-based courses, community-based internships, and career development activities to support student learning. This combination of learning opportunities is designed for student participants to increase the depth and breadth of their personal knowledge and experience.

Students subscribe to a “program” based on their interests, experience and aspirations. A program is made up of 8 optional courses that serve to focus and develop the knowledge, skills, and interests of students in a broad occupational area.

Learning activities engage students in a process that incorporates technology applications in core subjects, lab-based experimentation and internship. Outcomes include high levels of student “engagement” and “technological literacy”.
