As a Career Path High student, 11th and 12th graders enroll in a Career and Technical Program through Davis Tech. Their Davis Tech Program is the mechanism for how they earn their CTE and elective credits required by the State of Utah for a high school diploma.
Therefore, it is not optional to be in a program, it is mandatory and constitutes a portion of their necessary high school credits. While all high school students must earn one CTE credit and five and a half elective credits, Career Path High students have the benefit of earning those credits simultaneously while earning a college Career & Technical Certification.
While students attend Davis Tech tuition free, there is a yearly $40 registration fee that is covered in your fees with Career Path High. Although most programs do not have additional costs, some will require the purchase of consumable learning materials. For additional details, please visit the "summary & cost" section for your desired program by clicking HERE.
Your first step will be to register online to obtain a Davis Tech student ID number. It will only take a few minutes to complete your application, but you will need to know your social security number. Be sure to take note of your student ID and remember the password you've created! Click HERE to get started.
Once you've finished the application, it will prompt you to complete the Student Orientation.
The link should be provided upon confirmation, but is also included with the "Important Davis Tech Links". You can take the quiz as many times as needed, but you must score at least an 8.5 to pass.
Your remaining steps will be to obtain a transmittal from your counselor and visit Student Services to complete any necessary testing.
Your transmittal will tell Davis Tech the program, days and time you're allowed to enroll in your program.
Credit is awarded based off of 30 hour increments. You may notice that your schedule indicates a certain number of hours for you to complete your course. Classes are generally going to be 30, 60, 90 or 120 hours. However, there will be some outliers. Regardless, credit will still be calculated the same.
Example: 15 hour course = .125 credit
30 hour course = .25 credit
45 hour course = .375 credit
60 hour course = .5 credit
90 hour course = .75 credit
120 hour course = 1 credit
Once you complete a course, Davis Tech will post the final grade to your Davis Tech transcript. At the end of each quarter your completed credits will be entered into our ASPIRE system and will appear on your Career Path High transcript. If you are in the middle of a course when report cards are due, your Davis Tech instructor will submit your grade at the time of submission. However, only your final course grade will appear on your transcript.
