ROP classes offer students a chance to explore and experience a career field before making a commitment to a college major. Students will have the opportunity to learn job skills at an actual job site or in a simulated work environment. Career areas such as medicine, computer technology, sales and marketing, design and drafting, visual and graphic arts, acting and television production, music recording, child care, animal training, building trades, electronic and computer aided design trades, automotive trades, cosmetology and manicuring are among the selections described in the following sections from which students may choose.
All ROP classes award high school credits that count toward practical or fine art graduation requirements. ROP classes are offered during the regular school day, after school or in the early evening and Saturdays.Classes are taught by both contract teachers and by vocational credentialed specialists who are experienced or employed in their respective fields. They offer realistic and practical learning experiences in a variety of settings. Each completing student receives a certificate of achievement identifying the competencies learned in the class.FOR INFORMATION ON DAYS AND TIME OF EACH CLASS, SEE THE ROP COUNSELOR, ROP TECHNICIAN OR YOUR SCHOOL COUNSELOR IN THE COUNSELING OFFICES AT AGOURA HIGH SCHOOL OR CALABASAS HIGH SCHOOL.

How Does it Work?
You MUST have a JOB at August registration. Location must be approved by the instructor and must be within the geographic location of the school. Babysitting does not meet the requirements of this program.
It doesn't make a difference if you are here on permit. You must comply with the same rules as students who live within the district.
You will be assigned you to a class depending upon the kind of job you have. Our classes are retail sales, child care, office or food services. You will attend this class once a week. Attendance in this class is MANDATORY
in fact, much of your grade depends on excellent attendance.
You must work a minimum of 10 hours per week at your job. Your employer will sign an agreement that you will not be scheduled to work during your class time. Your teacher will come to your job site on a regular basis to evaluate your performance on the job and get time sheets signed.
