What is Career Technical Education, or “CTE” as it’s commonly referred to?

CTE is a program of study that involves a multi-year sequence of courses that integrates core academic knowledge with technical and occupational knowledge to provide students with a pathway to postsecondary education and careers.

For much more information about CTE, visit the California Department of Education’s CTE web page.

For more information about enrolling in CTE courses, enrolling in courses that meet college admission requirements, or both, make an appointment to speak with your high school guidance counselor.

What is Blueprint for Tomorrow?


Blueprint for Tomorrow is a career readiness program funded by the Amador County ROP, operated by the Amador County Unified School District (ACUSD).

At its launch, Blueprint for Tomorrow includes a career awareness curriculum for grades 4-6 and a career guidance curriculum for grades 9-12. Visionary work for this program maps out comprehensive K-12 career readiness programming.
