February is CTE Month!
JCHS has a great collection of elective offerings including a full music and art programs (K-12), business, and culinary arts. We are also partnering to provide a healthcare careers pathway program which includes college credit and an LCC-issued health occupations certificate for entry level medical work and an edge for admission to competitive nursing programs.
JCHS was awarded a Career and Technical Education (CTE) Revitalization Grant from the Oregon Department of Education for $495,280! This project will improve hands-on opportunities for kids starting in the 2014-15 school year.
The project in a nutshell: The Welding shop moves into the old auto shop, more than doubling facility size and equipment inventory. New machining equipment will include a CNC mill and CNC plasma table. A CNC router table will be added to the adjacent woodshop, and our drafting room will be fully equipped with computers, CAD software, modeling tables, a large format printer and a 3D printer.
Yet, facility upgrades are only the beginning. Core academic teachers will bring CTE learning into their classrooms, adding familiarity and focus to the value of our professional programs. We expect JCHS graduates to have the competitive skills to pursue higher education or enter the workforce directly in the fields of manufacturing, engineering and architecture.
Plans are developing to being a Skills USA chapter. This student entrepreneurship program will allow students to hone their skills for Woods, Metals, Drafting, and Culinary competition.
JCHS would like to thank our industry partners: Lane Community College, OSU Engineering, gLAs Architects, Willamette Valley Company, Knudtson Manufacturing, the Cabinet Factory, NW Stamping & Precision, JAS Industrial, Bulk Handling Systems, and Western Pneumatics.
