Schools Utilize ESSER Funding for Career and Technical Education Curriculum
Are you looking for a way to engage your students with career and technical education (CTE) curriculum in this challenging educational environment?
The Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) Fund, passed as part of the CARES Act, can be used by districts for “purchasing educational technology (including hardware, software, and connectivity),” “planning and implementing activities related to summer learning and enrichment and supplemental after-school programs,” “any activity authorized by the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act,” and more.
CTeLearning offers innovative CTE courseware and bootcamps that directly meets these needs and can be taught in-person, remotely or as a hybrid model—without requiring any teacher expertise in the subject matter.

Check out a previous blog post to read about how this CTE education is already being achieved in Kansas. The business education department at Haven High School continues to be recognized nationally, as teacher Jessica Wilson’s program has been one of the top producers of students certified in career and technical education nationwide. It is not uncommon for schools around the country to contact her about her program and how she guides her students to earn industry credentials and prepare them to succeed in their future endeavors.
