As a tribute to Dr. Byrl Shoemaker, the Byrl R. Shoemaker CTE Institute has been formed to provide the opportunity for all individuals involved with CTE to gain a broader knowledge and understanding of career-technical education, as well as develop personal and professional leadership characteristics that will benefit their schools/organizations and CTE in Ohio.
Applications are now being accepted from individuals interested in participating in this extended professional development opportunity. The program will include 3-4 face-to-face meetings per year, a team project, and utilize distance learning/communication tools. The kick-off meeting is Sept. 14-15 in Columbus, Ohio.
Application deadline is August 17. The online application and more information is accessible here.
Details on the Shoemaker CTE Institute can be found on the Ohio ACTE Website, but if you have any questions, please contact Christine Gardner.
