Director's Message - Hello William D. Ford Career-Technical Center Students, Families, and Staff,

Spring is here! Spring brings many opportunities for William D. Ford Career-Technical Center students to demonstrate their acquired knowledge, skills, and aptitudes.

FordCTC works with employers to identify credentials necessary to hire our students into high-skill, high wage, in-demand occupations. We have aligned our program standards and competencies to ensure student success in their chosen fields of study.

When we return from Spring Break, certification testing will begin. Please check with your teacher if you have any questions about available credentials.

I hope everyone finds Spring Break enjoyable.

With students in mind,

JaCinda Sumara
Principal, William D. Ford Career-Technical Center
Director, Career Technical Education and Early College
