MOUNT VERNON — The Knox County Career Center is in the process of reconfiguring its engineering drafting program into an Architectural and Engineering Design program.
At the school board meeting on Thursday, KCCC director Robert Kirk described the “work in progress.” He said a committee has been formed which includes representatives from the career center, area businesses, local high schools, the Knox County Educational Service Center, the area development foundation, North Central State College and the Ohio Department of Education. Kirk said the goal is to “make sure students who leave here are employable.” Committee members, he said, would like to see more articulation agreements with higher education institutions, greater collaboration with industry and business and increased credentialing opportunities for students.
Regarding personnel, the board approved the creation of a new full-tme position: Adult Education coordinator, and subsequently employed Joel Daniels to fill the position, effective Oct. 1. Adult Education Director Jane Marlow said Daniels will, in effect, be taking over the duties of what are currently four part-time positions. The move will result in savings of at least $10,000 to the board, Marlow said.
