The Coastline Regional Occupational Program prepares students to become gainfully employed in many different career areas. ROP classes can help you get the experience you need to obtain your first job, update your existing skills, and prepare you to qualify for a better job. Many courses include hands-on internships in business and industry. ROP can also be helpful in exploring college majors and career possibilities.
Due to budgeting difficulties in California, funding to Adult Education programs was reduced. In order to provide the classes that SVUSD Adult Education has historically maintained it has now become necessary to charge adult students enrollment fees and no longer offer discounts.
