Vocational Education (ROP)


The Regional Occupational Program (ROP) offers a multitude of entry level job training opportunities. It is designed to prepare individuals for employment in numerous fields through the use of internships/onthejob training in addition to traditional classroom instruction. The ROP works in partnership with local businesses and organizations to provide participants with maximum learning experiences and employment opportunities. An on -thejob component of the ROP is Cooperative Vocational Education (CVE) for high school students. CVE is designed to include paid work experience in addition to classroom instruction; the curriculum designates a minimum of 3 hours per week classroom instruction and 15 hours per week work experience for each CVE class.


The occupational training received by ROP participants enables them to obtain entrylevel employment in their field of training. In addition to acquiring current occupational skills, ROP participants also receive both instruction and assistance in upgrading academic skills. Job search skills workshops are an integral component of each ROP class curriculum. Additionally, high school students receive high school credit towards graduation requirements. Many high school classes are sequenced with basic vocational education classes; also, high school students can earn college credit through completion of required classes in a career path through articulation agreements with community colleges. Many classes are competency based and the instructor determines when the student has gained skills for entry-level employment.  ROP offers Math Credit for Avionics/CADCAM, and the Health Science Biology class meets UC “ag” requirements for Lab Science.


There are no required fees for high school students. All books and materials are provided for students use. However, adult students enrolled in our Cosmetology Course, Nursing Programs, Business Education, or any other ROP Courses will be required to purchase the books, kits, and related materials required for the courses. Also, please note, high school students have priority in terms of enrollment in cosmetology. High school students may choose to purchase items used in classes or necessary for employment. No high school students will be denied admission to an ROP class because of inability to purchase items needed for ROP training. Also, Compton Unified School District ROP may charge a Registration Fee for adult participants to cover costs for related supplies.


ROP classes are filled on a firstcome, firstserved basis and space availability. To enroll, contact the ROP office at (310) 8986000 for enrollment information or to visit the classroom site during instruction time. Compton Unified School District high school juniors and seniors may enroll by contacting their counselor. Refer to the current ROP Schedule of Classes to determine the site and time for a particular ROP class.
