New CTE Programs at GHS

 
 
 
 
 
The GUSD Career & Technical Education department is excited to offer two new programs for GHS students in health science nursing and information technology for 2019-2020 school year.   
 
In the LA region, careers in health science are in high-demand and this program will prepare GHS students for nursing and medical assisting.  Health science is great career path - the number of health science jobs is growing much faster than average, and the field is adding more total jobs than any other category.  With courses available to GHS students, they can graduate from high school with the skills and certification required to land a high-paying job.
 
Information technology is the fastest growing career category, and jobs in the IT field pay more than double the national average - the current median pay for IT workers is $81,430 per year. With courses available to high school students, they can graduate from high school with the skills and credentials to start pursuing a high-paying career.
 
The programs will be offered after-school to allow students more flexibility to complete the program without affecting the course load that students are required to complete for graduation and A-G eligibility.  If your student is interested, please sign-up in the counseling office.
 
Students if you are interested in taking FREE CTE after-school classes starting Aug 2019, please visit the GUSD CTE website: https://www.gusd.net/Page/1078 for more information.
