The Metropolitan Education District (MetroED) is a Joint Powers Authority (JPA) formed pursuant to Government Code, Section 6500, et seq, by the following school districts operating in Santa Clara County:
• Campbell Union High School District
• East Side Union High School District
• Los Gatos-Saratoga Joint Union High School District
• Milpitas Unified School District
• San Jose Unified School District
• Santa Clara Unified School District
The purpose of this JPA is to operate Silicon Valley Career Technical Education (SVCTE), a Regional Occupational Center Program (ROC/P), ROP classes for the participating districts and Silicon Valley Adult Education (SVAE).
This Career Technical Education Plan addresses how the SVCTE will continue to maintain its unique qualities in this transition from an institution that had previously represented an optional course of study for high school students to an institution that prepares students for a wide range of postsecondary options.
