Sophomores Visit Northwest Technical Center
The BOCES you think you know about from when you were young has undergone a lot of changes! If your child is a sophomore, he/she is currently eligible to enroll at Northwest Technical Center (NWT) for a trade or career training for his/her junior and senior years. Students attend Lisbon Central School for ½ day and attend NWT for ½ day. We have a large number of students taking advantage of this educational opportunity.
Our 10th graders will meet the NWT counselor, Mrs. Brenda Thurman, in December to learn about the opportunities at the Tech Center. Then, we will follow with a visit for all of our sophomores on January 9, 2014. Each student will select two programs to visit in the ½ day trip. Following that visit, students will begin to enroll for the following year if they wish. Enrollment forms are due by April 1st to Mrs. Putman.
Many of the NWT programs offer college credit opportunities as well. You can learn more about the offerings at the tech center and read all of the details in the booklet found at the following link:
