In an increasingly complex and rapidly changing workplace, it is important for students to understand that education is vital to long-term success. They need to see how the lessons they learned in math and science classes are used every day in industry.
Central Nine Career Center recently received a state career and technical education grant designed to help students make that connection. The grant will pay for teacher training and to help the school arrange students internships with state-of-the-art manufacturers.
Officials from both Central Nine and Greenwood schools have been looking for ways to partner with manufacturing, health care and information technology businesses in central Indiana.
