WHO CAN ENROLL IN ROP CLASSES?
The ROP was established to provide career technical education for high school students 16 years of age or older (typically 11th and 12th grade students). Students under the age of 16 can be enrolled in an ROP class only if the student is enrolled in grade 11 or higher. If the student is in grade 10, the student must receive a counseling referral to ROP as part of a specific career technical pathway, complete with parental consent.
CAN SCHOOL CREDIT BE EARNED FOR ROP COURSES?
High School students who satisfactorily complete the course requirements can be granted credit according to local district policies. ROP students in the Rialto District can earn no more than 20 credits per semester and 40 lifetime credits.
ROP students completing a course receive a Certificate of Competency, which is signed by the instructor. In addition, there are a few classes that are articulated with local community colleges.
