Historic meeting of V’ACTE and Community College Governing Board set for Monday
An historic meeting of the District Valley Academy for Career and Technical Education and the Community College Governing Board will occur on Monday, November 10 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the V’ACTE office, 830 S. Main Street, Cottonwood. The public is invited to attend.
V’ACTE is responsible for Career and Technical Education (CTE) training in the Verde Valley and was established in 2000. Discussion will no doubt involve how V’ACTE students can receive the same CTE training opportunities as students and residents on the West side of the County now enjoy. For example, high school students on the West side of the County attend numerous classes at the Community College Career and Technical Education campus (CTEC) located at the Prescott Airport. The College has invested about $15 million dollars in that campus and it has excellent, advanced terchnical education facilities and courses. However, high school students on the East side of the County are unable to attend those courses for a variety of reasons. The need in the Verde Valley for such training is critical.
