    ·        What is CTEWorks? 

    CTEWorks, formerly known as 49er ROP, is a Placer County Office of Education program that provides an opportunity for students to explore future career opportunities while mastering the necessary skills needed for college, advanced training, or careers in business and industry. Combining their academic knowledge and technical skills in a real work environment, students increase their career and college readiness. All of this is accomplished through a combination of classroom instruction, supervised hands-on training in a laboratory settings and on-the-job training. 

    ·         CTEWorks is available for high school seniors, juniors, and qualifying sophomores.   

    ·         Sophomores may enroll in the “on-campus” classes with an administrator or counselor referral and approval. 

    ·         Some CTEWorks courses require students to report to a training site at a local business (called “community classroom” courses) a few days per week to practice their skills in a real environment,  others are taught entirely in-class or as a blended online and in-class format.  

    ·         Course times vary in length from 50 minutes  to 3-hours each day.  CTEWorks courses may be taken within the student’s regular school day schedule or during a period of time that extends beyond the regular school schedule. 

    ·         Students must be able to provide their own transportation to the course location and/or training site. 

    ·         In order to receive a Certificate of Completion in a CTEWorks course, the student must complete the course with at least 95% attendance, a grade of C or better, and must master 80% of the course’s core competencies. 

    ·         Most courses only accept students in the Fall semester.
