Career & Technical Education

Jump Start

Jump Start is Louisiana’s innovative career and technical education (CTE) program. Jump Start prepares students to lead productive adult lives, capable of continuing their education after high school while earning certifications in high-wage career sectors.
Students are required to attain industry-promulgated, industry-valued credentials in order to graduate with a Career Diploma. (Jump Start is an elective path for students pursuing a university-preparatory diploma.)

Schools receive the same accountability grade credit for preparing students for careers in high-demand job sectors as they do for students who achieve top academic honors.

Our mission is to provide an educational system that will afford everyone the opportunity to receive relevant education, work readiness skills, and valued credentials that will prepare students for successful careers in a global economy.

The Office of Career and Technical Education (CTE) is founded on the belief that a productive life includes meaningful work. Career and technical education is a vital part of the total education process of the East Baton Rouge Parish School System. It is essential to every student’s general education to provide opportunities for them to develop creatively, intellectually, and in manipulative areas. Career and technical education instruction provides for development of skills, technical knowledge, insights, attitudes, safety judgement, and related information essential to success in a student’s chosen field of endeavor.
