Concord Regional Technical Center Steve Rothenberg, Director
Welcome to the Concord Regional Technical Center's website!
Greetings to all, including our future students, present students, graduates, staff, and community members.
The CRTC has had a long and successful history of providing Career and Technical Education to students in Concord and surrounding communities. We have many graduates to prove it!
Career and Technical Education is focused on learning, just as in any classroom; yet what we also offer is the opportunity to transfer knowledge and apply it to real-life situations.

CRTC's Unique Approach to Assessment...
Student performance assessment exists in all schools, classes, and curricula; but at CRTC, assessment (for learning) has a unique meaning. Continual assessment of student performance for the enhancement of student learning and improvement is dominated only by our own self-assessment for the purpose of improving CRTC services to students, parents, taxpayers and other stakeholders. Just as our mission identifies our focus upon increasing student skills and understandings, it also focuses on the improvement of our curriculum, instruction, and facilities.
We have developed a dynamic process call SPUR to address our assessment for learning and improvement mission.
