Triad High School houses three Ohio Hi-Point satellite programs for Triad students in the fields of Advanced Manufacturing, Agribusiness & Production Systems, and Supply Chain Management, seeing several success stories between businesses and students. These opportunities are afforded to Triad students thanks to the strong partnership between Triad Local Schools and the Ohio Hi-Point Career Center, two organizations dedicated to providing students with exceptional educational opportunities.
Ohio Hi-Point Career Center provides middle and high school students the opportunity for advanced technical and skills training, earning professional certifications needed for the modern-day workforce as well as college credits for their coursework, making college more affordable for today’s families.
To continue to provide 21st century education for 21st century jobs, the Ohio Hi-Point Career Center Board of Education recently took action to place a 0.6-mill permanent improvement issue on the May 8, 2018 ballot. The Board has been discussing plans to meet the demand for skilled workers in emerging jobs within our communities and adapt to the ever-changing technology needs for the past few years.
The permanent improvement issue will provide funds for renovations on the Bellefontaine Main Campus and increase technology, tools, and equipment within the district's 56 satellite programs – and future programs – needed for today's modern-day workforce.
We know how important it is ensuring every student has a plan, whether for employment or continuing education. Providing 21st century education for 21st century jobs through advanced technical and skills training will help create a solid foundation for students and help continue to grow our local economy.
