Jordan School District is committed to serving students by providing opportunities for them to realize their potential as contributing citizens and life-long learners. To better prepare our students for future careers, Jordan School District is developing new programs in a state-of-the-art facility located on the Jordan Campus of Salt Lake Community College.
The Career and Technical Education Department in Jordan School District has a well-earned reputation for providing high-quality programs staffed by skilled educators, who are supported with excellent equipment and training.
