Welcome to the Career Technical Education Department
Career Technical Education (CTE) is an educational experience which incorporates academic learning and the development of technical skills. One year (10 credits) of Career Technical Education is required for graduation. Two years (20 credits) are encouraged for Career Technical Education pathway completion. Students participate in classroom presentations as well as perform hands-on experiences in a lab setting. Study skills and job entry level skills are stressed with emphasis toward the world of work, career decisions, consumer knowledge and opportunities in higher education. Several of the courses in the Career Technical Education Department have Tech Prep Articulation agreements with the College of San Mateo, Canada, Skyline and West Valley Mission Community College. Tech Preparation Agreements allow student advanced placement and college credit earned while in high school.
