The Career Technical Education (CTE) program in the Newport-Mesa Unified School District offers elective courses in a sequential CTE pathway, within an industry sector that incorporates science, math, English Language Arts (ELA), and CTE common core standards. Increasingly, states and districts are organizing educational opportunities along with experiential learning through a coherent career pathway system. This secondary school strategy ensures students receive career knowledge combined with rigorous academics and hands-on learning resulting in deeper engagement, attainment of workplace skills, and academic achievement for students. Career pathways encourage student choice in the direction and alignment with local industry and career opportunities; they also help students transition from school to post-secondary education and careers through purposefully designed courses and services.
