In Oregon, students enrolled in CTE programs are 15.5 percentage points more likely to graduate from high school in four years than students who do not take the courses, according to data from the Oregon Department of Education. http://johngriffincave.boxcrack.net/2016/11/27/deciding-upon-major-elements-for-vocation/Additionally, students of all races and ethnicities who are enrolled in such classes graduate at higher levels than the statewide average of 74 percent, ODE data show. In the Portland Public Schools District, the overall graduation rate during the 2013-14 school year was 72 percent; among students who completed at least two CTE classes, it was 91 percent. In the Springfield School District, vocational program students are 21 percentage points more likely to graduate in four years than students who dont take those classes; 20 percent more likely in the Bethel district and 10 percent more likely in the Eugene district, according to the ODE. In 2015, the state of Oregon had its highest high school dropout rate – 4.3 percent – in more than a decade. That seemingly small percentage accounts for more than 10,000 students. But local educators said that CTE programs can help to reduce that number. Churchill High School Principal Greg Borgerding said CTE programs are some of the most popular courses at the school. These are the classes that a lot of kids love and connect with, Borgerding said. They help students stay passionate about school. Bordering said that expanded vocational programs such as the ones at Churchill also offer an alternative to the traditional four-year college path.

We had a lot of intensity out there in the second half.” Green was 7 of 11 from the field, including 4 of 6 from 3-point range. Que Johnson led Western Kentucky (3-2) with 12 points and five rebounds. Anton Waters had 11 points and 10 rebounds while Pancake Thomas has 10 points for the Hilltoppers. Sam Timmins had 12 rebounds for Washington, which only trailed for 32 seconds of the game and had its largest lead of the first half at 34-21 with 3:51 left. The Hilltoppers cut it to 39-31 by halftime. Then came the second half, something Western Kentucky coach Rick Stansbury said his team broke down in all facets. ””It was a seven-point with 16 minutes left to go, from that point on, we just had bad, bad turnovers and bad execution,” he said. ”We had some missed shots, some quicker shots – and Green jumped on us in the second half.” BIG PICTURE Washington: The Huskies should feel good about how Fultz responded to a cold shooting night by contributing in other ways and ending the night a point and two boards short of a triple-double. Fultz, who was averaging 25.5 points per game coming in, was held to nine points on 3-of-14 shooting from the field.
