Grand Junction, CO – Students interested in applying for the new P-TECH program coming to Central High School this fall can learn more about the program and get their questions answered in real time via Facebook Live at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 12, 2019. Viewers can type in questions and have them answered live by District 51 College and Career Readiness Director Cheri Taylor and Western Colorado Community College Acting Vice President of Community College Affairs Brigitte Sundermann. The Livestream will be broadcast through District 51’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/schooldistrict51.    

P-TECH, which stands for Pathways in Technology Early College High Schools, forges public-private relationships across the state to encourage more students to prepare for jobs in STEM (Science, Technology Engineering, Math). The partners in the local P-TECH program are District 51, CMU/WCCC, and Colorado Advanced Manufacturing Association-West businesses GPD Global, Jabil Lewis Engineering, Reynolds Polymer, Schmueser and Associates, and Wren Industries. 

Starting this fall, Central High School will be one of just seven Colorado high schools participating in the state grant program that lets students simultaneously earn a high school diploma and an associate degree from a participating community college at no charge to the student. 

Students can choose a four- to six-year pathway to complete their high school education at Central and an associate’s in Mechanical Engineering Technology, Machining, or Welding at Western Colorado Community College. Their education will be fully funded through the state’s P-TECH (Pathways in Technology Early College High Schools) program.
