Industry involvement plays a major role in the sustainability of Yakima School District’s (YSD) Career and Technical Education program. In collaboration with local employers, YSD is actively working to prepare the next generation of professionals for careers. In fact, YSD has been so successful that industry is now relying on the CTE program to turn out qualified candidates.  

Beyond moving students directly to careers, YSD also has articulation agreements with local colleges that allow CTE students to receive advanced placement in many of their courses
