At their regularly held meeting on Tuesday, January 17, the Board heard a presentation from Mission Valley Regional Occupation Program (MVROP) Superintendent Thomas Hanson and Director of Educational Services Dr. Cliff Adams-Hart.  The two provided an update of programs offered through their Career Technical program for 2016-17 and the plan for future programs for 2017-18.  Currently, MVROP offers 59 Career Technical Education (CTE) courses:  26 of which courses carry UC “a-g” accredited status.  MVROP also offers dual enrollment which allows high school students to take and earn recognized college credit at the same time.  The presentation included information on how ROP classes contribute to member districts meeting their College and Career Goals as part of the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) Evaluation Rubrics.   Their presentation can be found here.
