Ralston Public Schools Continues to Focus on Career Choices for Students

Ralston Public Schools is helping its students get an early start in their career choices.

RPS recently earned a grant from the Nebraska Department of Education called reVision, which will be used to update and grow Career and Technical Education offerings through the district.

Through this multi-year reflection, engagement and growth, RPS has added CTE programs; gained input from industry professionals on each program of study; and defined specific three-course programs of study or academies where students can really gain knowledge during high school in health sciences, programming, education or skilled trades.

Tiffanie Welte, director of secondary education with RPS, said the new program will give students more options and a different outlook when it comes to choosing a career path.

“To some degree it’s a re-branding,” Welte said. “We want to make this exciting and more enticing to students. The emphasis will be on high school students, but we will use the blueprint across all grades.
