Career Tech Education (CTE)

On December 19, 2019, the DJUSD Board of Education approved the Career Technical Education program proposal, which includes fourteen pathways across six industry sectors.  This launches the broadest implementation of CTE programming in our District's history, and is a substantive step forward to providing high-quality and relevant learning opportunities for all of our students, particularly those who are furthest from opportunity.

In the fall of 2020, DJUSD staff began the rollout of the pathways below. All pathways will exist at Davis Senior High School, except those marked as occurring at Da Vinci Charter Academy (DVCA).
