Mission of Career Technical Education 

Career Technical Education courses will provide students abundant opportunities to obtain or reinforce academic skills.  Teachers will emphasize the practical applications of academics to the working world.  Career Technical Education pathways will continually include research into various employment options, establishment of career goals, and the development of job skills, good work attitudes and job hunting strategies.  The District's CTE program will be updated regularly to reflect current industry practices, changes in technology and labor market conditions. Equal access will be provided to all handicapped and disadvantaged individuals in recruitment, enrollment, and placement activities within the CTE program.

Development of Pathways in Response to
Labor Market Demand

Ceres Unified School District is committed to developing partnerships with post-secondary education providers and local employers to successfully respond to the current demand for skilled labor in today’s workforce.  Employers in Stanislaus County are in high demand for trained, skilled employees that are ready to enter the workforce and have the potential to learn additional skills and advance to other positions within the industry.

Interested high school students, contact the Career Technical Education Teachers or CTE Youth Advisors at your school for more information on courses and how to enroll.
