Public Services Industry Sector

Career Pathways offered by San Diego Unified:

The Public Services sector provides a foundation for secondary students in government, public administration, public safety, legal, and human services. Students engage in an instructional program that integrates academic and technical preparation and focuses on career awareness, career exploration, and skill preparation in the industry. The sector encompasses three career pathways: Emergency Response, Legal Practices, and Public Safety. These pathways emphasize processes, systems, and services related to serving the public's interest. The knowledge and skills are acquired within a sequential, standards-based pathway program that integrates classroom, laboratory, and project- and work-based instruction, as well as internship, community classroom, work experience, and cooperative career technical education.
