With schedule selections currently taking place, students have at least two new CTE class options for the 2019-2020 school year: cybersecurity and video game programming.

The cybersecurity course is a one credit course which will be available to 10th through 12th graders.

The addition of this course was inspired by student interest and job reports.

“Our kids have been asking about it because they’ve attended a couple cyber security conferences that we’ve hosted here at the CTE center over the last two or three years,” cisco teacher Kip Bledsoe said. “The second one is the job opportunities because we’ve been told that by 2021 that over three million jobs will be unfulfilled in the cyber security world because of unskilled workers and so we want to prepare our kids for that.”

Video game programming isn’t a new class however it is a new name to the video game design course and will be available to juniors and seniors only.

Following the completion of the video game programming course, seniors will have the opportunity to take the newly approved advanced video game programming course.
