CTE Public Services

We are currently negotiating a plan with Yuba Community College to offer a Public Services Pathway. These courses would be Yuba Community College Courses, taught by Yuba College instructors on the Wheatland Union High School Campus. Students would be taking 2 classes in a term/semester. The courses would be taught by 2 different instructors, 2 days a week (for a total of 4 days), with an Academic Technician supervising a study/homework day or guest speakers on the 5th day of the week. Exact courses are currently being determined by Yuba College and WUHS, but will likely include:

Courses

Introduction Course

Pirate Focus
Grade Level: 9
UC/CSU: Elective (“G”) requirement
Credits: 10.0
Graduation Requirement: GFSF
Pre-requisites: None.
Dual Enrollment/Articulation: Articulation with Yuba College (COUNS 25)
Grading Scale: 4.0
Description: A comprehensive career and life planning course. Students complete the course with a 10 Year Plan for success, a Skills-Based Education Plan, the beginning of a Professional Portfolio, and a sense of relevance for their high school courses. In the context of a study of the changes that occur during a typical life span, each student will construct a personal profile of current and projected interests, aptitudes, skills, values, personality, and life and personal circumstances.

Courses

The following courses are not part of a Pathway but are CTE courses offered under the sponsorship of Yuba Community College.

These courses are Yuba Community College Courses taught by Yuba Community College Instructors. Students wishing to participate in this program must be willing to commit to producing college-level work and maintain the highest level of professionalism throughout the course. There will be a rigorous level of homework and class participation expected.

Agreements on this course arrangement are expected to be completed by May of 2022.
