What’s New

The Six District Educational Compact does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, disability, or age in its programs and activities.

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

Working closely with the six Compact district superintendents, we have finalized two items concerning the start of this school year:

1) The common start date for all Career-Technical Education Programs will be Monday, August 24th.

2) Transportation will be available.

A “welcome letter” will be sent to each new Career-Technical Education student in early August with additional information.

Thank you.

Important Notice:
Students Who Have Applied for Career-Technical Education Programs:

Even though we are all on a most unusual journey, we remain enthusiastic about the Compact Career-Technical Education programs for the 2020-2021 school year. We welcome two new offerings – Modern Communication through Media Production and EntrepreNEW Academy – to the CTE family. As an update, I want to share the following with you.

All students who have applied to a Career-Technical Education (CTE) Program will still be considered for placement. Since Governor DeWine has extended the remote learning order until May 4, the Screening and Placement process for 2020-2021 Career-Technical Education programs will be conducted virtually. This is a top priority for us, and we are focusing on the most effective and efficient way to make Screening and Placement happen. As we know more about the various April dates for Screening and Placement, we will be sure to share that information as soon as we can.

Once we conduct the Screening and Placement event, you will be notified of the status of your acceptance by US mail.

One of the highlights following the Screening and Placement process is the scheduled “Meet the Student, Parent and Teacher Receptions” for each CTE program. Sadly to say, these Receptions, including “Celebrate Success” for the Engineering Academy, are now canceled.

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.
