St. Clair High School will hold a career and technical education partnership team meeting Wednesday, Nov. 8, at 2:30 p.m. in the library.

St. Clair High School is seeking business owners and community members to join the Career and Technical Education Partnership Team. This meeting is open to anyone who is interested in joining the Partnership Team.

Through their experiences in Career and Technical Education courses, students are learning in-demand, transportable skills such as problem-solving strategies, critical and creative thinking, and how to communicate and collaborate.

They are applying what they know to solve hands-on problems, reflective of real-world scenarios and careers.

A strong career and technical education community is instrumental in reinforcing student learning and creating opportunities for students. It also links students to community, business, and industry.

As a member of the partnership team, you can contribute by providing teachers and students with real-world industry insights, knowledge, and trends; support classes by offering advice on how to use specific equipment, providing additional resources to students and teachers, and/or leading students through a relevant project and show them the finished product; participate in review sessions for technical skills assessments and industry recognized credentials; provide guidance around school-day or after-school activities; organize field trips for teachers and students to places of business, manufacturing facilities, hospitals and/or colleges; talk to students about the challenges and rewards of your career field; and/or be a mentor and help students explore the various paths they can take with their knowledge, skills, and interests.
