Pardon our Progress

Updated: Jul 27, 2021

As we add the 4th class of students, the number of student/career coach appointments will increase. At the end of last school year, it was about 300 appointments per month or 3,000 for the 10 month school year. The space in the career center had to be expanded. The solution was to knock a hole in one of the career center walls and install a door leading to the adjacent computer lab. The career coaches can still enter the school by using the badge reader at the career center door but now have access to an additional large room housing 40 computer stations.
