Several districts in Florida have chosen the online Career and Technical Education (CTE) curriculum from Odysseyware to prepare their students for life after graduation. Administrators in Seminole, Orange, Sumter and Hernando Counties have chosen the web-based platform offered by Odysseyware as their partner in CTE.

Currently, Odysseyware offers 39 CTE courses in five career clusters; Business Management and Administration, Hospitality and Tourism, Human Services, Information Technology and Health Science, with courses being added regularly. Courses in two new career clusters, agriculture and STEM, will be released in early 2014.

Using Odysseyware’s customizable platform, teachers can adapt and author coursework to personalize curriculum.

“The economic challenges of the past few years have thrown a spotlight on the importance of college and career readiness, 21st century skills, and for students of today to be prepared and confident entering the workforce. Odysseyware is thrilled to partner with districts like OrangeSeminoleSumterand Hernando Counties to support their vision of preparing every graduate for life after graduation,” said Odysseyware President, Kevin Youngblood.
