The Logan-Magnolia, Missouri Valley, and West Harrison community school districts are excited to announce that they are engaged in collaborative discussions to increase career and technical education (CTE) opportunities for students in Harrison County.
The joint venture would increase opportunities for students to attend courses in CTE areas and receive college credit, in conjunction with Iowa Western Community College, in a neutral setting within a short drive from the three area schools.
Collaborative meetings are being held between the three districts to explore funding opportunities, determine course structure, build partnerships with local businesses and entities, and discuss facility needs.
The schools are working together with local individuals to find a neutral location between the three schools, off hardtop roads, to allow students from all three districts to attend at this location.
The goal of this program would be to provide courses revolving around the economic needs of Harrison County.
This program, along with our regular educational programming, would provide the foundation for students to pursue further education and training after high school or immediately enter the workforce as a skilled worker.
The districts are hoping for this facility to be open by the fall of 2022.
Dr. Brent Hoesing, superintendent of the Missouri Valley School District, says, “The beautiful thing about this plan is that all three districts are coming together with a similar vision to offer more and better opportunities for our students.”
