What Is a Pathway?
A career pathway is a career-themed program available at a high school. An academy is another term used at individual schools to describe career pathways.
OUSD Pathways consist of a cohorted group of students who experience a sequence of industry themed curricula that integrates career and technical education courses, core academic courses, work-based learning opportunities and student support services. OUSD Pathways are supported by a team of teachers across subject areas and grade levels who collaborate regularly to facilitate student learning. By blending theoretical knowledge with real-world application, OUSD Pathways result in relevant and rigorous personalized educational experiences that inspire students and prepare them for college, career, and community.
