In the Cajon Valley Union School District in California, leaders have taken a bold approach that seeks to invigorate and reimagine career training and education for its students in a way that ensures relevance and hirability. In order to execute its strategic vision, the district is using technology to fuel this reimagined approach to career training and education in a major way.
