Career Technical Education

Since 2014, the goal of the Kern High School District's CTE expansion effort has been to create more opportunities for students to access career and technical programs while pursuing their high school diplomas.
KHSD's commitment to CTE has resulted in:
• Growth in the number of program offerings at our premier CTE capstone campuses (Regional Occupational Center and Career Technical and Education Center)
• New and varied CTE offerings at our 19 comprehensive sites and 6 alternative school sites
• New and dynamic partnerships with local industry partners
