            and how students may get the most out of a satellite skills center model.
        B. Give a brief description by reading the student survey cover letter. This is not a new high school, simply
           students could have more options for training by utilizing resources at other schools and students from other
           schools could utilize our resources and training programs in CTE. CTE stands for Career and Technical
           Education (vocational department). This is only in the planning and fact finding stage, nothing is approved to
           happen yet.
        C. Have students take the survey. Teachers should take the survey as well.
