"They also learn of the latest information on career options as they relate to CareerTech programs offered both at their schools and at their local technology centers."

Session topics included career and technology education program content and standards, teacher activities and responsibilities, student organizations, relationships with technology centers and integrating of academic skills.

Phil Berkenbile, state CareerTech director, said the program helps participants understand CareerTech's education goals and purposes.

"These school administrators play a very important role in helping us build Oklahoma Career Tech's national reputation," Berkenbile said. "Working together ensures educational programs are high quality and up-to-date."
