Career and Technical Course Options

To be eligible, students must:

  • be enrolled in a public school,
  • have a minimum of a "proficient" score on the 8th grade Minnesota Comprehensive Assessment (MCA) test for reading,
  • meet the assessment prerequisites set for the course that must be met by all students.

If a student successfully completes the technical course with a C or higher, the student can take additional career and technical courses as long as he or she meets the assessment requirement for those courses. Students who first enter PSEO programming through career and technical education can also begin to take PSEO general education courses in grades 11 and 12 by meeting the assessment prerequisites for the general education course they wish to enroll in, regardless of class rank or percentile on a nationally standardized exam.

Students must complete a Department of Education enrollment for each semester.
