• Pathways

    What is a CTE pathway?
    A CTE pathway is a sequence of two or more CTE courses within a student’s area of career interest.  Pathways are designed to connect high school classes to college, industry certifications, and/or a career.

    Why should students participate in a CTE pathway?
    While in high school, students have the opportunity to acquire free technical skills training in the career field he/she is interested in.  Students will learn valuable technical skills and soft skills making them employable regardless of the field of study they actually end up in.

    Are any CTE classes in pathways articulated with local community colleges?
    Yes!  KHS is starting to gain more and more CTE courses that will be articulated with Fresno City College under a Dual-Enrollment option where students can earn college credit for courses taken. Please talk to your counselor for more information regarding Dual-Enrollment options here at KHS.

    How do CTE courses prepare students for college and a career?
    All CTE courses support the Common Core and CTE Model Curriculum Standards.  Learning rigorous academic skills, especially in English Language Arts and Mathematics, is an integral part of each CTE course outline and competencies.  These skills help our students put English Language Arts and Mathematics to work in a real-world, hands-on environment they can relate to.  The CTE Model Curriculum Standards are designed to assist school districts in developing high-quality curricula and instruction to prepare students for future careers.  The Model Curriculum Standards were created with assistance from more than 300 representatives from business, industry, postsecondary and secondary education and reviewed by nearly 1000 members of the general public.
