The Regional Occupational Program (ROP) is career technical education that empowers students to make meaningful career choices by providing opportunities to explore their interests, develop career skills, and reinforce academics. ROP prepares students for further education at colleges and universities, employment, or advanced technical training. The uniqueness of this progressive program comes from the fact that ROP classes provide the opportunity for students to explore many different career paths. Students also develop positive work attitudes and behaviors, and are prepared for continuing education and training after high school. ROP empowers students by providing:

·         Opportunities to learn career skills at actual work sites

·         Hands-on, project-based learning that shows how academics apply to real-life situations

·         High school credit

·         A certificate that signifies the successful completion of an ROP course

·         A list of job specific competencies that verify work skills and knowledge mastered during the course

·         Instruction in job-seeking skills including interviewing, resume writing, and employment search

·         Up-to-date technology that prepares students for the modern work place

·         Inter-district enrollment which allows students to select courses at other high school sites and receive high school credit at their home school
