What is CTE?
Career Technical Education (CTE) provides students of all ages with the academic and technical skills, knowledge and training necessary to succeed in future careers and to become lifelong learners. In total, about 12.5 million high school and college students are enrolled in CTE across the nation. CTE prepares these learners for the world of work by introducing them to workplace competencies, and makes academic content accessible to students by providing it in a hands-on context.
What is ROP?
ROP stands for Regional Occupational Program, a state-funded educational program providing career preparation and guidance to meet identified educational and industry standards with some on the job training. These classes are ideal for students that are determining their career focus, seeking a career, or enhancing their current skills.
What is a CTE Pathway?
There are 15 Sectors in CTE and within each Sector are different Pathways. A Pathway will have an introductory class, a concentrator course (more detail), and a capstone course (which includes community classroom, internships, high level skill development, & certifications).
