SDHS Work Based Learning

Your future. Our focus.
"The mission of Career & Technical Education in Davidson County Schools
is to empower all students to be successful citizens, workers and leaders
in a global economy." 
Students in CTE classes have the opportunity to participate in a wide range of activities.  CTE prepares students to be LIFELONG LEARNERS.  Students choose pathways that align with their personal CAREER DEVELOPMENT PLANS.  After completing a pathway, students have the opportunity to gain real world application knowledge by becoming a student INTERN at a participating company.  Students may also participate in JOB SHADOWS and explore potential career pathways.  We offer student CTE ACADEMIES where students may earn a cord to wear at graduation.  Students may also attain community college credit for CTE courses through our ARTICULATED CLASSES 
If you own a business and would like to become an internship partner with SDMHS, please contact me.  We would love to hear from you!
Health Science Classes Stop the Bleed
Mrs. Livengood, Health Science teacher along with Ms. Holt, Career Development Coordinator would like to thank Army National Guard Staff Sergeant, Brian Haberny for a successful Project Blackout.  Students spent time in class learning about basic life saving care.  The goal was to provide the essential basic care before the EMT officials arrive on the scene.  Students spent the first day learning how to wrap a tourniquet to stop the bleed.  They were also taught the importance of teamwork and proper communication in these critical situations. On day two of the project, classroom windows were blacked out and pairs of students were given night vision goggles to simulate a black out situation.  Students entered the dark emergency scenario to find a mannequin bleeding out surrounded by frantic pedestrians.  The goal was to stop the blood in the shortest time possible.  Congratulations to these students on stopping the bleed!
