What is ROP?
The Tri-Valley Regional Occupational Program (ROP) provides hands-on career exploration and training to high school students and adults throughout the Tri-Valley.
Courses are held on high school campuses in the Dublin, Livermore Valley Joint, and Pleasanton unified school districts, along with TV Channel 30, the Dublin San Ramon Services District Regional Wastewater Treatment Facility (Pleasanton), and the Dublin Beauty College.
Benefits of taking a ROP Course?
Experience is the best teacher. ROP can help you get the experience you will need to get a job of your choice and will help you update your existing skills or train in a new field. ROP prepares students to obtain jobs to support the ever-increasing costs of college and promotes further advanced education in particular career areas.
Successful completion of a ROP Class counts toward your electivie credits required for graduation. The number of credits earned vary depending on the class. Successful completion of specific ROP classes also provide pathways to postsecondary education and careers and may qualify for credit by exam at Las Positas/Cabot Community College. Some ROP Classs satisfy an A - G requirement toward 4 year college/university admission. See the Tri-Valley ROP or LHS COURSE CATALOG for more information or talk to Ms. Cabading in the Career Center or your guidance counselor.
