The Atlantic High School Building Trades Program steering committee is looking for someone to assist with the implementing the course. The program, “Project Renovate,” will initially enroll AHS juniors and seniors, and provide opportunities not accessible in a classroom environment, for students to work and learn in a construction field.
Industrial Technology teacher Derek Bair developed curriculum for the course, and students are in the process of registering for next year’s classes. The course will benefit those students who are interested in entering the world of work upon completion of high school, or those who might enroll at a technical college, upon graduation.
A steering committee for the program consists of local contractors, carpenters and land developers, who have been providing program guidance and development. The committee currently has two construction projects under review. They are looking for an individual who may be interested in assisting with the course.
The steering committee continues to work bi-monthly to help the program gain momentum and move forward. For more information, contact AHS Principal Heather McKay at 712-243-5358, Joann Runyon, Atlantic Middle School School-to-Work Coordinator, at 243-1330, or Superintendent Dr. Michael Amstein, at 243-4252.
