Students who participate in Tech Awareness are admitted into their program of choice based on a rubric.
The final rubric score determines a student’s placement. These rubrics will be used by the Tech Awareness instructors to evaluate students using the following categories:
- CTEi Tech Awareness grade average.
- Attendance & Punctuality
- Discipline/Conduct Record
- Academic (4 Core academics are average: English language arts, math, science, social studies)
Students are then selected to enter the grade nine CTEi program based on their rankings. Those students opting to remain in the program but were not selected are then placed on a waiting list. Students on the list may make a request to enter a different program if an opening exists. Written parental or guardian permission is necessary before any admissions can be made. Performance in this course will determine future placement into the sophomore program. CTEi instructors will continue to use the rubric for determining promotion to the sophomore program.
