The Huron School district has been working on expanding Career and Technical education classes for several years. One of the challenges was to identify course offerings to add to those already in place according to John Halbkat, director of buildings and grounds.

A feasibility and enrollment study of the Huron school district was conducted and after considering options to expand and with enrollment number still rising at the high school level.  JLG architects developed a proposal to expand Huron High School.

The expansion will aid existing activities.

Halbkat said the addition would be a good fit to the school districts needs and no bond issue is needed.

Jolene Konechne director of ESL, CTE, Federal Programs and accreditation announced grant funding from the CTE collaborative grant and the Workforce education grant.  Both will help with the addition to Huron High School

The CTE Grant program part of a five million dollar senate bill 59 that was supported by Senator David Wheeler of Huron.  Other schools including in this round of the grant program include Northeast Technical High School in Watertown, the Willow Lake School district and Sioux Falls CTE academies.  View the entire presentation on the Huron School district web site under the school board tab.
