The District’s History
The Metropolitan Education District has a long, rich history in preparing students for occupations demanded by the California economy. The adult training program dates back to 1870 and the high school program traces its roots to the beginning of vocational education in 1917. Today, MetroED continues its career and technical education mission to best prepare its students for high skill, high wage occupations in career pathways demanded by the automated and highly competitive, global 21st century economy.
