Many career preparation opportunities are in place for Edgecombe County Public Schools students during their high school career. These career preparations are grouped within Career Clusters. Career Clusters are plans to link high schools to upper level education and the workplace. The clusters organize course work around career interest and career related skills.
High School Concentration
Beginning with the freshmen class of 2009-2010, it is highly recommended that students complete a concentration that will better prepare them for a career in the information age.
A concentration is a grouping of courses within a career cluster. Earning a Career & Technical Education Concentration requires completing 4 courses from a career cluster. Because the concentration is a focused educational plan, it will prepare students for further study at a college/university or for direct entry into the workforce.
Courses can be taken at:
- High School only
- Community College only
- Combination of High School and Community College.
