Superintendents from Mendocino County school districts gathered on December 13, 2019, at Ukiah High School (UHS) for their regular Superintendent’s Council meeting. Career Technical Education (CTE) was the topic of the day, and they took a tour to learn about the wide variety of CTE programs that UHS offers.
“I was overwhelmingly impressed by the quality and variety of CTE programs that Ukiah High School has to offer. In today’s world, career education is critically important for our students, and it is great to see the largest comprehensive high school in Mendocino county with such a wide variety of options for our students,” said Michelle Hutchins, MCOE Superintendent.
According to the California Department of Education, Career Technical Education is a program of study that involves a multiyear sequence of courses that integrate core academic knowledge with technical and occupational knowledge to provide students with a pathway to postsecondary education and careers.
There are also several student leadership organizations that are active within the UHS CTE program like Future Farmers of America (FFA), Future Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA), and Skills USA. To find out more about Ukiah High School’s CTE Programs, click here or call 707.472.5750.
