The Wyoming Association for Career and Technical Education (WACTE) provides activities for teachers, counselors, and administrators that both support and enhance career and technical education programs throughout the state. Members obtain staff development through local, regional, and national conferences and workshops. A leadership workshop is provided to the officers of the organization, the seven division presidents and president-elects, and appointed committee chair-persons. Information is also disseminated to stakeholders via many modes of communication. Business and industry input is essential to the validity of Career and Technical Education programs. Many teachers connect with business representatives from around the state together to dialogue about the business and industry perspective. WACTE is dedicated to maintaining communication with these representatives.
The mission of the Wyoming Association for Career and Technical Education is to provide educational leadership in developing a competitive workforce.
The purpose of WACTE is to support teachers and students by: Fostering excellence in career and technical education; Advocating public policy to benefit career and technical education; Providing access to professional development; and Creating public awareness of career and technical education.
