What is CTE?

Career Technical Education (CTE) is designed to engage all students in an integrated applied learning experience resulting in the ability to master both technical skills and academic knowledge necessary to for students to be career and college ready. CTE courses, which are offered at high schools in Hesperia Unified, provide up to date technical training that integrate common core academics in mathematics and language arts. CTE courses and pathways provide essential workplace and career readiness skills that students can draw upon over a lifetime of learning and career development.

CTE courses offer rigorous, integrated, technical, and academic content focused on careers that are intrinsically interesting to students delivered through applied, performance- and project-based teaching strategies that facilitate understanding and mastery. With the sequence of CTE courses, students are able to make a stronger connection between school and the real world. Making this connection often increases students’ interest in school and motivating them to go on to college and/or pursue a particular career.

HUSD-CTE would like to extend our appreciation to our local business partners who have taken time from their busy day to invest and provide these opportunities to our students. Many of our CTE courses offer internship or community class (paid and/or non-paid) experience in partnership with local businesses who want to ensure that our students have a hands on opportunity to apply their new skills.

Register for Career Technical Education courses with your high school counselor.

What is ROP?

The Regional Occupational Program (ROP)  provides career technical education and support services that augment and expand the capabilities of our school districts. Our courses provide instruction for entry-level employment, advanced training, and upgrading skills.  ROP courses are limited to occupational areas where there is reasonable expectation of employment or postsecondary articulation, and where there is sufficient student interest.  ROP is tuition free, however, the purchase of books, uniforms, supplies, medical clearance testing and/or licensing fees may be required.  Enrollment is limited. High school students have priority enrollment.

Many ROP courses are articulated with local colleges for high school and college credits.

WASC Accreditation

The Regional Occupational Program for the San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools recently received a six-year accreditation—the highest possible—from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).

"This is a tremendous accomplishment for our ROP and shows that our students are receiving high-quality instruction and guidance in their career technical education," County Superintendent Gary Thomas said.  County Schools ROP serves 16 districts countywide with an enrollment of nearly 18,000 students covering 125 career technical education classes of instruction.

"This really is great news. It's kind of like a Good Housekeeping seal of approval for our programs and instruction," said Kit Alvarez, administrator of the County Schools ROP. "Our six-year WASC accreditation shows that we are a quality agency with quality programs and that we are operating in a sound structure."


The accreditation process takes a look at student work and performance data, as well as interviews and input with students, parents, instructors, counselors and recruitment placement specialists in relation to quality criteria indicators.

ROP Teacher of the Year

Congratulations to Sultana High Schools ROP Medical teacher James Hodkinson for being named the San Bernardino County ROP Teacher of the Year.

Civil Rights

The Governing Board desires to provide a safe school environment that allows all students equal access and opportunities in the district's academic and other educational support programs, services, and activities. The Board prohibits, at any district school or school activity, unlawful discrimination, harassment, intimidation, and bullying of any student based on the student's actual race, color, ancestry, national origin, ethnic group identification, age, religion, marital or parental status, physical or mental disability, sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, or gender expression; the perception of one or more of such characteristics; or association with a person or group with one or more of these actual or perceived characteristics.

In order to comply with United States Department of Education Office for Civil Rights (OCR) requirement school districts must have in place basic procedures regarding federal statues and implementing OCR regulations, Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, as well as guidelines for eliminating discrimination and denial of services on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex and handicap. These basic procedures include an annual public notice, continuous notification, designation of a person(s) to coordinate activities under Title IX, Section 504, and Title II and a grievance procedure that will allow students and parents an avenue for dealing with alleged discrimination. Also, all educational programs and activities under the jurisdiction of the State Board of Education receiving or benefiting from state or federal financial assistance shall be available to all qualified persons without regard to sex, sexual orientation, gender, ethnic group identification, race ancestry, national origin, religion, color, or mental or physical disability pursuant to the California Code of Regulations, Title 5, Chapter 5.3, section 4900 et seq.
