Fairland High School Closing

Image
Attention Fairland High School Students and Parents:As you may be aware, Fairland High School will be closing for in-person instruction for the next two weeks due to several positive COVID-19 cases in that building. Their closing will require a modification to the bus schedule for those FHS students who attend Collins Career Technical Center. We have contacted the administration at FHS and they have agreed to run a bus to CCTC in the morning and return students to Fairland High School in the afternoon. There will not be normal bus routes to pick up students from their residence to Fairland High School. Students will board and exit the bus each day near the student entrance at FHS gymnasium. Students are not permitted inside the school building.Bus Departure to CCTC: 7:40 amBus Arrival to FHS: 2:40 pmStudents who drive to CCTC will obviously be unaffected by this change. Virtual learning will also continue as usual.

High School Restart Plan

Image
Schools throughout the state of Ohio have been working on plans for a safe and responsible back-to-school season. Students attend CCTC to develop skills and earn credentials to make them ready to work out of high school or prepare them for success. These are skills that require hands-on experience and are difficult to achieve in a remote learning environment. This is why we have been working with the Lawrence County Health Department, the Lawrence County JVSD Teacher’s Association, and the county’s seven school districts to create a plan. Together we have developed a plan that is adaptive to the current state of the virus and safely allows our students to pursue the career goals at the career center. Below are some of the highlights of the CCTC high school restart plan. You are encouraged to read the full plan by clicking here.As of this posting, the first day of the school year will be Monday, August 24thMonday, August 31st.Student attendance is based on the county’s status as determ…

UPDATED (May 12, 2020):
We will be streaming our 2020 Virtual Completion Ceremony on Friday, May 29th at 6:00 pm. Ohio Governor Mike DeWine will have a special message for CCTC graduates.

ORIGINAL (May 4, 2020):
The COVID-19 pandemic has forced society to cancel so many events. None of those are more sacred to us than our completion ceremony. We all agree that our students deserve recognition for their accomplishments. Unfortunately, we also have to weigh the risk that a large gathering of people creates during our current crisis. For that reason, we are not able to conduct a tr…

High School Due Dates and Computer Turn-Ins

High School Students and Parents,

Hello again! We have been thinking about you all and hope you are doing well. You are probably aware of the order Governor DeWine made on Monday. If you are not aware, he stated that Ohio schools will continue to conduct distance learning through the end of this school year. Clearly, there are a lot of unanswered questions about how the remainder of the school year will be handled for high school students here at Collins Career Technical Center.
Current School Work We conducted a total of four work exchange events on April 8th and April 9th where students could turn in their completed work and receive their next packet of work. Packets were mailed to students who do not have internet access. Senior work is considered complete with the first packet of work and should not expect a second paper packet. The work drop off box for paper assignments remains open on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 8:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. It is located at the high sc…

Update for High School Students and Families

As you are probably aware, Governor Dewine has issued an order that keeps Ohio's K-12 schools engaged in distance learning through May 1st. This new timeline would push back our return date to May 4th. It is possible that the Governor may extend that through the remainder of the school year. Our goal, as always, is to provide our students with learning opportunities in a safe environment. Our teachers have been instructed to prepare materials for students to complete during our time away from the school building.

Students who have access to the internet will be participating in learning through Google Classroom, CCTC Moodle courses, and a number of other resources that have been communicated to them via their instructor. Students without regular internet access will be able to collect paper learning packets to exchange completed work for new work at four different times and locations.
Main Campus Exchange: Wednesday, April 8th, from 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.Co…

Letter from Superintendent Dodgoin

Dear Parents/Guardians,

The health and safety of everyone in our community is a critical concern of the school districts board, administration, and staff. You have likely been following the news regarding the coronavirus, also call COVID-19, and the confirmed cases in the Unites States. Though the virus most often only causes mild illness and the current overall risk is low, it can still be fatal in some cases.

The Collins Career Technical Center is taking the guidance from the Ohio Department of Health (OOH) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) very seriously and following their planning and preparation recommendations. There are a number of preventive measures we all can take to reduce risks of illness and the coronavirus, as recommended by the Ohio Department of Health including:
