Welcome to Glenn County ROP
-    EXPECT SUCCESS !!   -

The Regional Occupational Program exists to assist students in making intelligent career choices and in preparing them for entry and growth in a career field of their choice.
The Glenn County ROP provides high-quality skill training and career guidance for high school juniors and seniors attending public or private high schools, out-of-school youth, and adults residing within the attendance boundaries of the five participating high schools. Glenn County ROP is one of 73 ROPs throughout the state of California.
Since 1970, the Glenn County ROP has served over 15,000 students in 28 occupational fields. During the 2005-2006 school year, Glenn County ROP trained over 1,300 high school and adult students, providing them with both entry-level and job upgrading skills and ensuring initial and continued employment.
Glenn County ROP works in cooperation with local businesses to provide students with current state-of-the-art classrooms, labs and on-the-job training. Many ROP courses have 2+2 agreements with Butte and Yuba College, which provide students with both high school and college credit.
Over 100 community members serve on various program advisory committees to ensure meaningful skill training, a varied job market demand and a high potential for student placement in every program offered through Glenn County ROP. The 2001-02 school year student follow-up study revealed that approximately 87% of students who successfully completed an ROP course and graduated from high school were employed and/or continued their education.
The future is promising, because the Glenn County ROP will continue to provide youth and adults with an educational environment that will lead them to become productive members of the community. Through continuing partnerships with local business and industry, training programs will be developed based on current job market demands and student career interests.
