The Mountain Home School Board heard the first-read of a proposal for the “revisioning” of the Career Academies at its meeting last week. It’s a process district personnel have been working on throughout the school year. Part of the process involved surveying parents, community members and industry leaders about the college and career readiness skills they found most important for young people to possess when they graduate high school.
Superintendent Dr. Jake Long says after gathering the input, it became clear the Career Academies need to provide support in three local industries.
Long says the proposed changes will be a better way for everyone involved to understand what is offered in the Career Academies.
Long believes the proposal is something that will benefit many people.
The Mountain Home School Board will spend the next month reviewing the proposal, and it will be on the agenda at the June meeting. If it is approved, it will be implemented for the start of classes in the fall.
