The History of ROP
Regional Occupational Centers and Regional Occupational Programs, which operate throughout the state of California as part of the Department of Education, were formed in the 1960’s to provide high quality career technical education to a large number of the population that cannot be provided for adequately, efficiently and economically by a single school or district. High School freshmen students through adult are served. High school students who take ROCP Courses to supplement their curriculum receive high school credits.
Our Mission Statement
The mission of the Valley Regional Occupational Program is to promote, support, and provide exemplary career technical education, career development, and workforce preparation that contribute to student academic and career success and to the economic development of our region and California.
