Important Re-Start Notice:
Career-Technical Education Programs for 2020-2021

Knowing there are many questions arising in the districts regarding the CTE programs, let me share this update that I believe will provide information for students and parents.

Even though one district is on a remote schedule and the other five are on a hybrid schedule, it is “business as usual” for students attending the CTE program of choice. ALL CTE programs will be in operational mode at all of the six high schools.

For some CTE programs, the students may attend five days a week; some may attend four days a week, etc.  This attendance is based on the program enrollment and the physical distancing requirements for that program/lab.

Transportation will be provided.

The common start date for CTE programs will be August 31 with the EXCEPTION of Kent programs that will begin on September 1.  Please see the following information for students attending programs at Kent:

Opening Dates:  Tuesday, September 1 (Tuesday through Friday programs; Tuesday/Thursday hybrid programs Group A), or Wednesday, September 2 (Wednesday/Friday hybrid programs Group B).

Programs beginning September 1 as follows:  Computer Aided Design & Engineering Technologies (CADET); Construction Technologies; Forestry & Landscape Management (F&LM); and Health Careers Technologies (HCT) will run four days a week, in person, Tuesday through Friday. Monday will be online for all.

The Engineering Academy will meet in person three days a week:  Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, beginning September 1. Monday and Wednesday will be online.

The following programs are divided into Group A and Group B (due to program enrollment and size of labs). For Athletic Health Care & Fitness (AHCF), Business & Sports Management (B&SM), Cosmetology, Electronics Robotics & Programming (ERP); Marketing, and Teaching Professions, the current plan is to utilize the hybrid model. This means these programs will be divided into two groups – A and B. Group A = Tuesday and Thursday in person and Monday, Wednesday, Friday online.  Group B = Wednesday and Friday in person and Monday, Tuesday, Thursday online.

Kent CTE teachers will notify students of their schedule.

A “welcome letter” will be sent to each new Career-Technical Education student during the week of August 17th.

It is vitally important, as well, for you to read the information provided by each Compact high school administrator regarding the Career-Technical Education programs in that district.

The safety of all students and staff is the top priority in each Compact district. I want to assure students and parents that all of the protocols — for sanitizing, physically distancing, face coverings and hygiene — are being implemented and will be followed daily.

The link below provides contact names and emails for each CTE program for your program-specific questions.

A.C.E. Academy, June 8-12, 2020 — Cancelled
Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, Kent State University has cancelled all Summer Camps considered “person to person.”  In addition, we recently learned that extensive renovation will be made to the Kent State University Airport runways this summer, which would have prohibited the flyover as part of the ACE camp.  If you have registered for the ACE Camp, Kent State will be issuing you a refund.

For future planning, tentative dates for the 2021 ACE Camp are June 14-18.  Any students who registered for this year’s camp will have first choice preference for the 2021 ACE Camp.
