ROP provides students with opportunities to explore, acquire and/or develop a career/ technical skills and to prepare for life-long
learning and success in the changing workplace. The goal of the program
is to prepare all students to be college and career ready and to become
a contributing members of our community. This
is accomplished by providing students with high quality and relevant
career and technical education that develops job specific skills, work
knowledge and attitudes.
Courses offered provide
career/technical skills training and/or on-the-job training with
work-based learning. Generally, most students in ROP classes are 11th or
12th graders, but classes are accessible to 9th and 10th graders on a
space-available basis. ROP courses may not be available every year and
sometimes, new courses that aren’t on this list are added. Many of these
courses are offered on other school campuses, but are open to students
if scheduling permits. Course locations are noted when possible.
HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATION:
ROP courses are electives under Applied Academics. A student must earn
10 credits in two out of three selective elective areas (Fine Arts,
World Languages and Applied Academics). For example, if a student earns
10 credits in a ROP course (Applied Academics) he/she would still need
10 credits from either World Languages (1 year) or Fine Arts (1 year) to satisfy the
graduation requirement. Speak with your supervising teacher for examples of pathways and graduation course requirements.
COMMUNITY COLLEGE ARTICULATION AGREEMENTS: ROP Course Alignment with Cabrillo College
14 of the courses offered by the Santa Cruz County ROP have
articulation agreements with Cabrillo or another community college. These agreements
give students a “head start” or advanced standing when they continue their
