A virtual fundraising event to benefit Career & Technical Education in Roanoke City Public Schools.
Career & Technical Education (CTE) provides students enrolled in Roanoke City Public Schools the opportunity to gain employability skills, technical knowledge, and the training they need to succeed in the workforce — today and in the future. RCPS actively partners with local businesses and industries to design and provide high-quality, dynamic programs to meet the current, emerging, and projected labor market needs of our region.
With your help, the Roanoke Career and Technical Education Foundation will be able to continue to support students enrolled in RCPS’ CTE programming through scholarship awards and enhanced programming.
Currently, more than 3,800 students are enrolled in and taking nearly 6,000 CTE classes. We are excited to double our seat capacity in the 2023-2024 school year as additional students begin taking classes this fall, with the new Charles W. Day Technical Education Center adjacent to William Fleming High School opening in January 2024. This is in addition to the existing Roanoke Technical Education Center at Gibboney Hall adjacent to Patrick Henry High School. This expansion will allow us to meet increased demand from businesses and industries and provide new classes in addition to our existing programs.
Your investment in CTE programming impacts students, families, and our community. Students enrolled in CTE:
