A new Career and Technical Education Center (CTEC) is under construction in East Baton Rouge Parish (EBR), La. The new facility will be a modern addition to the district in East Baton Rouge, and will be built to display an industrial look that mirrors some of the disciplines studied within. The design allows for future additions and changes as dictated by the changing labor market.
The new school is being built to promote education for many in-demand, high wage fields. EBR CTEC hopes to address a shortage of qualified candidates for many technical jobs in the region. The school, which plans to open this coming August, currently has 133 students enrolled.
