Trumbull Career & Technical Center is the only Ohio recipient of the Outstanding Technology Centers That Work award, sponsored by the Southern Regional Education Board.
The award was presented during SREB’s annual staff develop- ment conference last month in Charlotte, N.C.
TCTC is among only 41 high schools, middle schools and technical centers nationally to be recognized for adherence to SREB initiative guidelines.
The awards were presented to high schools, middle schools and tech-nology centers that have demonstrated outstanding commitment to one of these areas:
Improving graduation rates,
Improving college- and career-readiness,
Improving the quality of career/technical offerings,
Implementing the High Schools That Work, Making Middle Grades Work or Technical Centers That Work design,
Implementing a signature feature, or
Implementing the Literacy Design Collaborative and/or Mathematics Design Collaborative.
“This award is especially significant because it demonstrates the school’s continued commitment to strive toward excellence,” said Jason Gray, TCTC superintendent. “It also points to how administrators, teachers and students collaborate to achieve optimal results.”
Mary Flint, TCTC director, accepted the award for the center.
More than 1,200 sites in 30 states and the District of Columbia use the framework of High Schools That Work Goals and Key Practices to raise student achievement and graduation rates.
