  • Tech Prep is a federal and state supported effort to provide closer alignment between secondary (high school/R.O.P) and community colleges to refine career ladders to better meet student needs.
  • Articulation is a means to provide students with advanced placement and college credit for equivalent occupational courses successfully completed at a secondary or Regional Occupational Program level.
