NEW COURSES

There are a few new courses available for the 2024-2025 school year. Information about these courses is available in the High School Academic Planning Guide. To access the High School Academic Planning Guide, click here.

Work Based Learning: The purpose of work-based learning is to provide students the opportunity to connect what they learn in school with work-site applications to enable a smooth transition into the workforce and/or postsecondary education after graduation from high school. 

Live Event Production Workshop: The purpose of the Live Event Production Workshop is to provide hands-on training to individuals who are interested in becoming live event production technicians for theater, streaming, sports, or live events. This program focuses on broad transferable skills and stresses understanding and demonstration of the following elements of the live event industries: working as part of a team, safe and efficient work practices, use of lighting and sound equipment, operation of broadcast video camera, set-up and use of audio recording equipment, operation of control room equipment, and organization/managing events from conception to reality.  Coursework will lead to students being ready to complete several industry-recognized certifications, which could include but are not limited to; Digital Audio I, Event Planning and Management, Video Production I, Backstage Certification, AVIXIA AV Technologist Certification.

Unified Introduction to Foods: This course follows a similar concept as Unified PE, however Unified Introduction to Foods is designed to increase the student’s skills in basic food preparation. This course focuses on the intellectual, and social growth of all participants, while engaging in food preparation activities alongside peers with and without disabilities helping to foster important social relationships.  Emphasis is on practical experiences of cooking and nutrition. Labs include breads, main dishes, side dishes, cakes, desserts and snacks. 

Computer Aided Design/Drafting in Engineering: This is not a new course, but a change to one we already have.  COMPUTER AIDED DESIGN / DRAFTING (CADD) IN ENGINEERING replaces PLTW Introduction toEngineering Design with updated activities and projects to better match student interests of today.  CADD and Engineering is a project, problem-based course where students learn to sketch and design parts and assemblies.  Then create the drawings needed for production using CADD. They will also use the design process to build on foundational engineering concepts with an emphasis on the application of modeling to generate solutions and new products. This course is recommended for students 9-12 who are exploring a future career in Engineering or CADD skills used in multiple fields.
