Superintendent Greg Briles said there were two or three students involved in vocational programs last year. Eighteen students will be participating in Auto Tech, Cosmetology, Criminal Justice, Early Childhood Education, Graphic Imaging, Health Science, Precision Machining, and Welding in the 2015-2016 school year.
“Those are classes that give students a career future,” commented Briles. “They give them the skills that it’s going to take to walk out of high school if they don’t choose to go into a college or university. This gives them the opportunity to be marketable as soon as they leave high school. More of our students are looking at that career path over that college path.”
The Oregon-Davis School Board this week approved the vocational class enrollment as presented.
