Career Technical Education (CTE) pathways and courses have expanded to include additional articulation agreements that allow students to earn college credit along with high school credit, honors weighting, meet University of California a-g entrance requirements, dual enrollment opportunities, and CTE pathway completion.

65% of CUSD High School students are enrolled in CTE.

RED FLAG FOR STUDENTS WHO WANT TO APPLY TO 4- YEAR SELECTIVE COLLEGES OUTSIDE OF UC and CSU REGARDING MEETING A - G REQUIREMENTS

Students will NOT be aligned in (E) LANGUAGE OTHER THAN ENGLISH

CUSD and the State of CA no longer require a foreign language to graduate.

Students can take CTE classes instead.

*Students who do not take 2 years (recommended 3) of a foreign language may be denied entrance into many selective 4- year colleges or universities that still require 2 years of a foreign language other than English.
