Career & Technical Education
Career Pathways in the Lawrence Public Schools provide students a sequential set of classes to explore careers of interest and develop skills in preparation for college and a career. Introductory courses allow students to explore a wide variety of careers within the field. Technical level courses focus on specific skills that are needed within the career area. Students who have gained the technical skills within the pathway are eligible to enroll in Application level courses, which provide "real-world" experiences in the classroom with industry mentors or through professional workplace experience. Many courses are eligible for college credit.
