Career Technical Training
 

• Every student in the county must have the opportunity to be trained in a modem career technical school delivering cutting edge training matched to employer needs.

• Most jobs today will require skills that are attainable at public secondary career technical schools.

• Career Technical Schools are a needed investment to ensure a skilled workforce for Fayette County.

• Potential jobs in Fayette County have gone unfilled because employers could not find people with needed skill sets
