MOUNT VERNON — The Knox County Career Center school board on Thursday took action to move forward with the construction of a building addition to house the JROTC and sports medicine programs and advanced $200,000 from the general fund to the building fund to cover initial costs. The new facility will be approximately 18,175 square feet and is projected to cost roughly $160 per square foot, or, with architectural fees, around $2.8 million. Work is expected to start in June.
Featured programs at the meeting were the Business & Finance Academy and Information Technology. Business instructor Tammy Klein gave an overview of her classes’ activities throughout the year, including an “awesome” visit to the Federal Reserve Bank in Cleveland. IT teacher Ann Orr talked about some recent training she attended and the changes she would like to make to her program as a result. She intends to expand the opportunities for the students by adding modules in Java, Android app development, Adobe and project management.
