Career and Technical Pathways

Within Chico Unified School District there are many Career and Technical Pathways that prepare students to both prepare for college majors, postsecondary training and careers simultaneously.  
Each of the pathways listed above has a three-year sequence of courses, industry certifications, work-based learning paperwork, and media to showcase their student work and CTSO or Career and Technical Student Organization.  
Active Advisory Boards and Business and Industry Partnerships make Career and Technical Education a seamless transition to college and career success.
