The Mahoning County Career and Technical Center will be fully implementing the Academy Concept for the 2017-2018 school year. The philosophy behind this model is to increase collaboration between career technical program instructors and content teachers.This structure will provide increased opportunity for alignment of career technical competencies with industry credential requirements, as well as cross-content integration of content standards. The Academy Concept will maximize the opportunities provided for career technical students, making their experience in school as relevant as possible, preparing them for life in college, and their future careers.
The Academy concept was piloted during the 2016-2017 school on a volunteer basis. Based on the results of the pilot, the entire school will implement 4 Academies, each with a targeted Early College Pathway (CC Plus) through Stark State Community College.
Each Academy is a cluster of programs, and assigned content teachers that will serve the programs assigned. The teams will have common planning, and have an assigned Principal:
