Career Technical Education is a sequenced course of study that provides students with academic and technical knowledge and the skills necessary to prepare them for further education and/or for careers in current and emerging employment sectors.
Mission of Merced Union High School District Career Technical Education:
Career Technical Education and the standard course of study are to be viewed as complementary educational programs. Career Technical Education courses will provide students abundant opportunities to obtain and reinforce basic academic skills. Teachers will emphasize the practical applications of academics to the working world. The District’s CTE program will be updated regularly to reflect current vocational practices, and changes in technology and labor market conditions. Equal access will be provided to all special populations and disadvantaged individuals in recruitment, enrollment, and placement activities within the CTE program.
