How to Be Involved

Be an Advisory Committee Member

Career Technical Education is an important component of a student’s total education. Tri-Cities Regional Occupational Program (TCROP) is a dynamic school-to-career delivery system for high school students and adults. A key to the success of these programs is the cooperation and support provided by the business and industrial community. Today, more than ever, it is critical that Advisory Committees be involved in planning programs and evaluating the successes of our efforts. Committee members assist in maintaining relevant up-to-date training programs also meet accountability requirements set by the California Department of Education.

Work-Based Learning

This is a method of instruction that utilizes unpaid on-the-job training experiences at business, industry, and public agency sites to assist students in developing competencies (skills, knowledge, and attitudes) necessary for entry-level employment.

The intent of work-based learning is to provide additional resources concurrently; formalized classroom instruction can be extended, and the acquisition of salable skills enhanced. If you have questions, please feel free to contact us at (562) 698-9571.
