Career Technical Education (CTE) is designed to provide students with skills required for employment in specific careers. The state of California has identified 15 industry sectors, 13 of which are represented in CVUSD. Career Pathways are series of courses that when taken in order, can expose students to increasingly advanced technical skills. When taken in sequence, students are considered "pathway completers" (see chart below).
- Pathways are designed to be taken in the order listed: Introductory (where available), Concentrator, then Capstone. Courses must be taken in this sequence for students and schools to receive CTE completer credit – which figures into CCRI.
- Students are encouraged to seek certification in the pathway when available.
