Career Technical Education


    The California Career Technical Education (CCTE) model curriculum standards are organized in 15 industry sectors with two or more career pathways. Each pathway is a coherent sequence of rigorous academic and technical courses allowing students to apply academics and develop technical skills in a curricular area of interest. Career pathways prepare students for successful completion of state academic and technical standards and more advanced postsecondary work.
