Career Technical Education
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. 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.
Most CTE courses offered at SVUSD articulate with a nearby community college and several courses satisfy the subject matter requirements for admission to the University of California and the California State University system (primarily in the "f" Visual and Performing Arts or the "g" College Prep Electives categories).
The SVUSD CTE Medallion is awarded to seniors who complete at least 3 years in one CTE pathway/sector while maintaining a minimum grade of "B" in those classes. The medallion is district recognized and has been worn by students at school award ceremonies, CTE award ceremonies, and at graduation.
