ROP is working with principals to develop new science programs at two new high schools, Dougherty Valley in San Ramon and Heritage in Brentwood, as well as at El Cerrito High School and Walnut Creek's Northgate High. New programs include introduction to engineering, robotics engineering technology, environmental science and analytical forensic science.
The money will also be used to expand the ROP career guidance support to high school career centers.
The Contra Costa County Office of Education runs the ROP, which provides classes to approximately 12,000 students and 10 adult school sites in Contra Costa and Alameda counties. ROP is funded by the state and is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. For more information, visit www.cocoschools.org/stsvcs/rop.html.
