Virginia Beach City Public Schools will host its first Career and Technical Education (CTE) career signing ceremony May 20 to honor high school seniors entering high-demand industries or the military after graduation.

"The division's CTE programs offer cutting-edge career and technical experiences for students to explore a wide range of high-wage, high-skill and high-demand career pathways. Whether a student plans to attend college, seek an apprenticeship, join the military or begin work right after high school, VBCPS provides opportunities to support every student's career dream," said Dr. Sara Lockett, director of the Office of Technical and Career Education.

At the signing ceremony, students from the Virginia Beach Technical and Career Education Center and the Advanced Technology Center (ATC) and their future employers will sign letters of intent, specifying their commitment to full-time employment related to the technical and career courses completed and industry credentials earned while in high school.

The ceremony will be held May 20 at 6:30 p.m. at the ATC, 1800 College Crescent in Virginia Beach. For more information on the division's CTE program visit
