Junction City High School students will have expanded access to college credits and career training thanks to a career readiness grant from the State of Oregon! JCSD, along with 32 other Oregon school districts received 10.3 million for hands-on learning that offers high school and college credits.
Junction City and Bethel were the only two Lane County School Districts to be named CTE Revitalization grant recipients.
The Career Technical Education (CTE) Revitalization Grant awarded to the JCHS program is worth over $300K and will allow a complete renovation of the Culinary Arts Program. The resulting upgrades will make curriculum expansion possible as it increases the classroom/lab capacity, quality of facilities, access to dual credit options and will allow for participation in county and statewide culinary competitions.
Through our close work with Lane Community College industry partners and local businesses, we have identified a path to articulation of our cooking courses which is dependent on identified facilities upgrades.
We are delighted that Junction City students will have another great Career-Technical Education path available.
