REGIONAL OCCUPATION PROGRAM (ROP)
Note: ROP courses are overseen by the Ventura County Office of Education, Career Education Center (CEC). The classes are open to all Ventura County High School students in grades 11 and 12. These classes are not Westlake HS classes, but students may use an ROP course as one class in their WHS class schedule. Westlake HS staff will not register students who list an ROP course on their course request form. Students are solely responsible for completing the registration steps below and corresponding with the Career Education Center regarding enrollment.
