Pacific Career and Technology High School has earned the distinction of a California Department of Education (CDE) 2016 Model Continuation High School.

 

“I’m excited for all the staff, who are doing everything possible to provide every opportunity for our students to be successful in every way,” says Site Administrator Shane Yang. “From teachers to custodians, office staff, and our campus safety specialist, who have a strong rapport will all students, motivating them to give their best every day and not give up.”

 

Pacific High is a continuation high school, meeting the needs of 120 students who are behind in graduation requirements and are at risk of not graduating. The school will retain its title of Model Continuation High School for three years and will be recognized at a state conference in May.

Common Core Standards

The Common Core Standards are the new standards that students will encounter in K-12 schools. They provide a consistent and clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them.

For more information about the Common Core Standards and what our district is doing to prepare, please visit our district's website.
