APPLYING TO A CTE PROGRAM
Career and Technical Education programs have a limit regarding the number of students that can be accepted. The State of Ohio governs the number of students that can be accepted into a Career and Technical program.
Students will be considered on the basis of grades, attendance, application, interview, interest and readiness in the career and technical program choice, as well as other applicable screening and selection criteria. In some areas, assessments of predictable performance may be used to aid in the final selection. Students not admitted to programs may be kept on a waiting list for any vacancies that may occur in a program.
Students applying to programs at neighboring Stark County high schools may not be notified by those schools of acceptance until early April. Students should complete a full 1st semester (August - December) schedule at JHS during the registration period. If accepted, the student's counselor will adjust his/her schedule to remove electives and include the new courses.
