Dakota Valley High teams up with department of education to expand technical education
The future of tech education in one local school district was on the agenda tonight.
A member of the South Dakota Department of Education stopped by Dakota Valley High School to help brainstorm ways to expand technical education programs.
Business leaders in the community also stopped by, sharing their ideas for training opportunities and building connections for students.
"We would like to open avenues both to visiting factories and places of employments in exploring opportunities to help open our students' eyes and have some parent nights for careers where they can come in and get information and meet with the different educational organizations and different employers in the community," said Dr. Jerry Rasmussen, Superintendent.
The school is asking the Dakota Valley Business Council to connect them with potential local employers to partner with for the program.
