Davis Joint Unified School District (DJUSD) and Davis Senior High School (DSHS) celebrated the completion of its Career and Technical Education (CTE) pathways program enhancements. The HMC design team, General Contractor Roebbelen, DJUSD Superintendent Matt Best, Executive Director of Capital Operations David Burke, Davis Sr. High School Principal Bryce Geigle, Ed.D., CTE students, and faculty gathered to commemorate the occasion and cut the ribbon on the school’s engineering/robotics, agriculture, and transportation facilities.

DJUSD received $6.2 million in facility grants from the State of California to improve and expand these three CTE pathways at DSHS and increase student engagement and college/career preparedness. The school’s robotics team, the Citrus Circuits 1678, began in 2004 and worked out of a math classroom and shipping container at a nearby school. The Engineering/Robotics Pathway building includes 7,800 SF of additional instructional space and new outdoor learning spaces. The Transportation Pathway facility includes an additional vehicle repair bay specific to electric vehicles, a new canopy shade structure in front of vehicle bays, and an additional restroom. The Agriculture Pathway space includes a shade structure and improvements to existing shops, barn and greenhouse, and the animal care area.
