Work-based learning, a unique opportunity offered by the CTE Center and Collin College, is an application based program for students. The applications are now open and close Jan. 26.

Construction is more than halfway done on the expansion of Frisco ISD’s CTE Center. The project began in 2022 as part of a planned expansion and is expected to be completed by the 2024-25 school year.

“We’re probably around 60% completed. The outside shell is on, most windows have been installed,” CTEC assistant principal Travis Volk said. “They’re actually already started to work on sheetrock in there, they’ll be doing paint and mud here soon too. So everything is what we call ‘dried in,’ it’s already weatherized on the main portions of the classroom.”

Being built with funds from the 2018 bond, the expansion will provide two new wings with 30 classrooms and seven multi-use spaces, greatly increasing the capacity of the campus. 

“Both the additions and the renovations we could add up to another 2000 students into our rosters already,” Volk said. “Right now we serve about 5000 students, so we could add another 2000 plus a day.vSo really we’re almost adding 50% of the population into the CTE Center.”

With the new expansion, new courses will be offered including an eSports 3 classroom.

“It’s also an opportunity for high schools without eSports classes,” Volk said. “We’re moving high-end over here, so eSports 3 will be housed completely at the CTE Center and we may offer some sections of eSports 2, to kinda help cover classes at the home campus, but mainly eSports 3 will be our main emphasis here.”
