Information Technology, or IT (pronounced “eye tea”), has transformed the way the world does business, has boosted workers’ ability to produce, and even changed the forms of global art and culture. Computers are vitally important to America’s present and future prosperity, and the key to our continued leadership in this field is the talented IT specialists who make the “thinking machines” think.

tomorrow, schools are working to help students achieve in these
challenging subjects. In order to provide a way for schools to organize
instruction and student experiences around broad categories of
occupations from entry through professional levels we must link to what
is described as a career cluster. The current definition of a career
cluster consists of a grouping of occupations and broad industries
based on commonalities.
career clusters connect what students learn in school with the
knowledge and skills they need for success in college and careers. Each
career cluster identifies different pathways from secondary school to
two- and four-year colleges, graduate school, and the workplace.

learn new skills, adjust to technological change, and advance current
and future employees into their ultimate career choice.
