The Placentia-Yorba Linda Unified School District (PYLUSD) will join other schools and school districts across the nation to celebrate Career and Technical Education (CTE) Month throughout February. Each year, CTE Month shines a light on the unique college and career opportunities students are afforded through career technical education in high school.
The North Orange County Regional Occupational Program, affectionately known as NOCROP, plays a huge role in educating students in various CTE pathways. Their organization provides accredited coursework, highly qualified teachers, and career readiness training for five PYLUSD high schools including El Camino, El Dorado, Esperanza, Valencia, and Yorba Linda. NOCROP also serves students in four other local Orange County school districts.
In PYLUSD, students gain an educational advantage through unique, future-ready courses in a wide variety of CTE pathways including arts, media and entertainment, building and construction trades, business and finance, educational, child development, and families services, engineering and architecture, health science and medical technology, hospitality, tourism, and recreation, and information and communication technology, just to name a few. These programs provide the academic and technical skills, knowledge, and training necessary to succeed in college and future careers.
