    Career and Technical Student Organizations (CTSO) are co-curricular components of Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs. CTSOs extend the impact of CTE programs through personal and leadership development, applied learning, real-world application, competitions, and more. Each CTE program has one CTSO in which its students maintain membership and participate.

    CTSOs function as a component of classroom curriculum and instruction in order to go beyond the technical aspects of a subject to also develop professional and leadership skills. CTSOs help guide students in developing a program of study and career path, as well as affording opportunities to compete against others in the same CTE program area, earn financial aid for post-secondary pathways, and participate in community service and service learning. In addition, students have opportunities to hold leadership positions at the local, state, and national level and attend leadership development conferences to network with other students as well as business and industry partners.

    Provided below, you will find a list of the CTSOs available at FUSD high schools, their associated CTE programs, the site advisor(s) for each campus, and the website for each CTSO:
