The Scioto County Career Technical Center...Scioto Tech, is in a state of transition. We are completing the renovation of our main campus, expanded the physical dimensions of our instructional area and have changed the district’s name. The district is celebrating the opportunity to expand, redefine, and improve our career technical educational offerings.
This school will forever be “Vo-Tec” in the minds and hearts of all who have experienced the services of the district over the past 35 years. However, the term “vocational” has become associated to rehabilitation services, and statewide legislation dictates this adjustment. We hope everyone understands that we are Vo-Tec, and will forever be associated with everything connected to the name Vo-Tec.
Currently, the district is working with Ohio School Facilities Commission to upgrade and modernize the main campus on Vern Riffle Drive in Lucasville. This project affects every square inch of the main campus. Each classroom will be larger, and a new construction that focuses on the educational delivery of science, technology, engineering, and math. The project is on schedule with a projected completion date in 2009. The face of the school will change; however, the accountability of our educational delivery will remain the same.
We are expanding and growing our partnerships and the way we deliver our educational opportunities. With our offerings expanding into the community for training, and the advent of our programs with comprehensive partners, the Scioto County Career Technical Center is reaching more individuals with career-based training than at any time in its history...We are proud to be an integral part of making the regional workforce an economic development positive.
The Adult Workforce Education Center is excited as the governance of adult education transitions from the Ohio Department of Education to the Ohio Board of Regents—The University System. This transition will provide students with the opportunity to apply hours earned completing a career-technical certificate toward a two- or four-year degree.
As the district welcomes you to our web based communication, we also welcome the changes in career and technical education. These changes will better define our educational offerings over the next 20 years. The district is diligent in its quest to maintain the educational accountability defined by the Ohio Department of Education and the Ohio Board of Regents.
We embrace growth and our expanding partnerships with business, industry, and post-secondary educational institutions. We look forward to the challenges of providing an outbound workforce that benefits our local employers and the needs of the region. It is our goal to equip our students with the skills needed to attract new business and industry partners to our region.
