Career Technical Education
The College and Career Readiness Department provides high quality support to all schools in Sacramento City Unified as they move to adopt a “Linked Learning” approach preparing students for career and post-secondary experiences. The department also works closely with industry and community partners as well as post-secondary institutions to support our schools in preparing our students to be successful after graduation.
Linked Learning is a career-themed approach to learning that prepares students for their future: academic preparation for college and professional skills for success in the workplace. Students study through a profession that interests them, learning challenging academics and professional skills in the classroom while getting real world experience through internships. No matter which professional interest they choose, Linked Learning students develop into adults who are prepared for college, career, and life after high school.
Our department strives to support schools with guidance/coaching, curriculum resources, highly qualified Career Technical Education (CTE) teachers, and connections to local industries interested in partnering with schools.
Sacramento City Unified School District CTE classes are open to all high school students.
