All career and technical education programs follow the district's policies of nondiscrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, national orgin or ancestry, gender, age, disability, height, weight or marital status in all programs, activities, and employment.  In addition, arrangements can be made to ensure that the lack of English language skills is not a barrier to admission or participation.
