Welcome to Career & Technical Education

  • Career & Technical Education (CTE)

    Connecting Learning to Earning

     Career & Technical Education (CTE) courses are offered in grades 7-12 and focus on preparing students with professional training in a variety of career fields. Students develop an understanding of the importance of work and how performance, efforts, and decision making directly affect future educational and career opportunities. Students are trained in basic workplace skills as well as specific technical proficiencies in wide variety of career pathways.

    Career & Technical Education courses provide innovative educational opportunities within the Marysville School District. Students are engaged in learning and excited about the opportunity to experience focused course work that allows them to excel in an area of interest. Students who participate in CTE courses are being prepared to enter a highly competitive workforce based on a global knowledge and information economy.

    Students who are career and college ready need to be able to compete in this every changing workforce and have marketable skills that put them ahead of others. CTE offers these skills in a rigorous, hands-on, project based learning environment. CTE courses also offer embedded core academics which allow students to complete their high school graduation requirements more efficiently. CTE courses are aligned to Washington State teaching standards and offer high school as well as college credit in many areas. Instruction is provided by highly trained educators who are experts in their field of study.

  • Imagine Tomorrow

    May 19-21

    Alaska Airlines Imagine Tomorrow challenges 9th through 12th graders to seek new ways to support the transition to sustainability. Students research complex topics related to sustainability, then innovate technologies, designs, or plans to mobilize behavior. They forge connections in their communities and create positive change. In this competition, as in life, solutions are limited only by imagination.

    We will be sending 7 students to compete in the competition

  • NJROTC Competition

    Posted by Kathy Wilde at 3/20/2017
    Marysville NJROTC competed this past weekend against 26 other units on 18 March at Roger's High School in Puyallup with fantastic results.
     
      1.  The Unarmed Drill team earned 1st place in the State and 2nd place individual Drill Team               Commander Cadet Micha Adriano (BIO)  This team has been 2nd for past 3 years. 
      
      2.  Air Rifle team 3rd place.  Cadet Carol Kovalenko (MP) 2nd place of 55 shooters, 1st place              female. Cadet Marco Del Campo (Bio) 5th.  
     
      3.  Unarmed Dual Team 1st place Cadets Fitzpatrick Varias & Joshua Docyuanan (Both BIO)
     
      4.  Armed finished in 8th place led by Cadet Austin Buchanan (MP).   
      
      5.  The Battalion came in 4th place overall   
     
    Our team leaders create a theme for each meet.  This one, the cadets selected superhero as the theme and wore capes.  They explained it "Superheros help everyone and cheer for everyone no matter what."  They definitely lived up to that theme as noted in the last picture.  That is our Cadet Adriano with the Cadet Commanding Officer of Unarmed team from the Everett team (they placed 6th) celebrating as they left the awards floor. 
     
    Thank you for all of your support.
     
    The cadets will be performing one more time on March 29th at the MP gym at 6:30pm for the community.  Please come cheer them on.

  • Cedarcrest STEM Updates for How Thing Work and Exploring Computer Science!

    Posted by Michael Shreeve at 3/17/2017

    In How Things Work…

    Students researched simple machines, energy, and Da Vinci’s Self Propelled car in order to create a vehicle that can use one or more of the stored energy sources that were available to Da Vinci at that time:  Elasticity, torsion, or gravity.

    The students challenge was to create cars that use one or more of the energies that would have been available for Da Vinci during the historical period of time he designed his self -propelled cart.

    htw

    After researching this topic, the students realized that cars such as the mousetrap car, the gravity drop car and the rubber band car would be part of their solution. 

    htw htw

    htw htw

    However, this is only part of the challenge. Students must also create a car that can travel more than 10 meters, and use two or more of the three types of energies in the above examples:  torsion, gravity or elasticity.  They also were able to use 3D CAD software, computers and 3D printers for their project.   The students decided that the best part to design was a simple machine:  The Pulley.  The pulley allows them to transfer energy from one place to another. They designed a pulley on CAD software,

    htw htw

    then 3D printed pulleys for their cars. 

    htw htw htw

    The students are now almost finished with their cars and will test them next week.

    htw htw

     

     

    In EXPLORING COMPUTER SCIENCE…

    Students this week finished the ACTIVITY CARDS on Programming through the Website “Scratch.” Now they are working in teams to create a Role Play Video game with multiple characters, levels and events.  The Genres include Fantasy, Comedy, Science Fiction and Action/Adventure. 

    ecs ecs

     

    FOLLOW THE LINKS BELOW TO THE SCRATCH WEBSITE TO HAVE A LOOK AT SOME EXAMPLES OF WHAT OUR STUDENTS ARE GOING TO ATTEMPT TO DESIGN—WITH THEIR OWN ORIGINAL CHARACTERS, STORY, SETTING, ETC…  WHEN THEY ARE DONE, I WILL SHARE THEM WITH YOU. 

    (Instructions for CAVE ADVENTURE)

     Instructions: Press the space bar whenever nothing is happening. Follow the directions of the textbox.

    This was fun to make.

    Posted by Andrew Christopher at 3/14/2017

    Mr. Christopher's Video 2 students at Getchell spent the last week working with area non profit organizations to create commercials. They were tasked with holding a conference call, drafting up a Contract Service Agreement, creating their own 4-category rubric to be scored on for this assignment, and deliver to their client in a week.
    All 9 groups met their deadline!!

  • Winners Announced: 2017 'Opt In for Student Success' Contest

    Posted by Ready WA at 3/9/2017
    Five Washington public high school students were each awarded $1,000 scholarships for submitting videos telling us why they "opt in for a better education," Ready Washington announced this week. Additionally, each student selected his or her favorite teacher to receive a $200 Visa gift card. Meet the five winners:
    1. Caedmon Calbero, Junior, Marysville Getchell High School (Marysville)
     
    2. Ethan DuWors, Senior, Timberline High School (Lacey)
     
    3. Annie Hager, Sophomore, Mount Si High School (Snoqualmie)
     
    4. Sarah Archer, Junior, Marysville Getchell High School (Marysville)
     
    5. Elizabeth Min, Junior, Decatur High School (Federal Way)

    Ready Washington received videos from all around the state, representing eight of the state's nine Educational Service District regions. A committee of judges from the Ready Washington coalition selected the winners based on content, creativity, and video quality.

    The goal of the Opt In for Student Success project is to build the student voice to talk about the importance of a high-quality education, the value of assessments and being prepared for college and career. Washington will have 740,000 job openings in the next five years, and we want our students to be able to compete for those jobs.

     Next week they should have some of their prototypes built so they can start testing them.

    EXPLORING COMPUTER SCIENCE Update for 2/16

     

    Students this week were introduced to Programming through the Website “Scratch.”

    ecs

     

     

    The students joined a classroom I created in order so that they can practice a form of programming that introduces them to computer science languages. 

    ecs

    “Scratch is a free programming language and online community where you can create your own interactive stories, games, and animations.”

    The students worked on three different sets of cards that led them through the steps necessary to

    1 Animate your name

    ecs

    1. Make something fly

     ecs

     

    1. Make a basic racing game

     ecs

    Next Week we will continue working through the self-paced tutorial program to continue exploring computer science with “Scratch.”
