The Wayne County Board of Education met Monday, October 19th and
gave their nod of approval to proceed with the Pathways to Readiness
program, which will basically change the high school from a traditional
high school to an early college and career center.
Students will have a variety of pathway options, establishing majors
that lead to a high school diploma. A students schedule will no longer
be based on a "one size fits all" instruction. In addition to high school
classroom studies, students may also be involved in online classes,
independent study, complete dual credit classes at SCC and work
Educators have noted that this years freshmen have the opportunity
to earn an associate degree from Somerset Community College by
the time they complete high school. The local high school is one of
only a few schools in thet state and first in this area to develop this
customized approach to education.
Also during the meeting, the board approved a change order to the
miccle school project that will include additional tile in the restrooms
for the addition. They also approved a pay application of approx.
$344,000 dollars for the construction project. Officials indicated that
the project is still on schedule for completion in December. << Return to PreviousIf you copy this article to a blog or forum, please leave the identification of the source (wkym.com) in the text.
