What's P-Tech?

Lytle High School is one of 62 PTECH Designated Campuses in the state of Texas for the 2019-20 school year.

This open-enrollment program provides students with work-based education. P-TECH programs:

Provide students grade 9 - 12 the opportunity to complete a course of study that combines high school and post-secondary courses.

Enable students to earn a high school diploma, an associate degree, a two-year post-secondary certificate or industry certification, and complete work-based training - all within a six year timeframe.

Allow students to gain work experience through an internship, apprenticeship, or other job training programs.

Partner with Texas Institutions of Higher Education (IHEs) and regional businesses and industries, giving students access to post-secondary education and workforce training opportunities. ALL at NO COST for students and their families!

The Texas Education Agency (TEA) collaborates with the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) and the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) to develop and implement a plan for the P-TECH program that addresses:

  • Regional workforce needs.
  • Course credit transfer policies between IHEs.
  • Internships, apprenticeships, and other work-based education programs for P-TECH students

Under the authority of the Texas Education Code and the Texas Administrative Code, the TEA developed a designation process for the P-TECH program. This designation process ensures that public school districts and charter schools operating P-TECH campuses maintain the integrity of the model.
