|Career & Technology|
The Oregon School District offers every student a unique opportunity by providing a comprehensive education. Along with their regular academics, students may choose from many career paths, without leaving the school district. These career pathways allow for skilled employment immediately out of high school to all areas of post-secondary education, including apprenticeship and Associate through Baccalaureate and Masters Degrees.
Ohio law states that every student MUST have access to Career-Technical Education. It may be provided by bussing to a Career Center / Joint Vocational School District (JVSD), or by providing programs in a local comprehensive setting.
In 1975, the Oregon community voted to build an addition on the campus of Clay High School in order to provide career and technical education to any student without traveling outside their home community. Today we have 11 programs in 8 career fields with over 50% of our juniors and seniors taking advantage of our comprehensive offerings. Most are taking advantage of the college credit offered while attending Career Technical programs at Clay High School. The complete list of programs is listed below with links for further information.
Rigor, Relevance and Relationships are the guidelines for career technical programs.
Rigorous academics are expected from ALL Clay High School students. Career & Technical programs follow the Ohio Core. Four credits each in Math & Language Arts, and three in Science are expected in Career & Technical Program schedules.
All Career & Technical Programs are relevant to the industry today and poised for the future. Clay students have the opportunity to earn credentials for the industry in their selected programs which are expected by employers.
Relationships are created between local businesses and our programs through active advisory committees and student placement in cooperating employer locations.
Career-Technical Education has been and continues to be a great investment for the Oregon City Schools
