Career Tech

 

The Stark Career Compact is a cooperative effort of Jackson Local, Lake Local, North Canton City (Hoover), and Plain Local (Glen Oak) School Districts. This Compact was formed to give students of these districts the opportunity to attend technical/career classes offered in four districts.

The selection process for each program is a competitive one, and requires an application from the student. Students are selected for the programs based on their application and an interview with the instructor. A guidance counselor from Lake will assist you in the application process and answer any questions that you may have about the programs.

Career Based Intervention (CBI)

 

Tom McBride
 
We believe all students have the ability to learn, to establish a career plan, and to carryout their career path to gain success in their lives. Career Based Intervention Programs are designed to assist students who possess barriers to career and academic success to establish a career path by using worked based learning experiences and gaining competencies to achieve a successful path to career options and post secondary training.
 
CBI is based on establishing key principles of higher expectations, studying the common curriculum of the school, and providing authentic learning opportunities for at risk students. Career Based Intervention is a one or two year program designed to introduce the student to the work force. Students will learn dynamics of job-search, employability factors, on-the-job relations, and job-oriented bookkeeping skills. Students will be expected to work part-time or full-time at a job site with a portion of the school day structured for such activity.

Health Tech

Health Tech Prep is an amazing program offered at Lake. If you are interested in the Health Professions, then this program gives you a tremendous “jump start” on your career. While our program is geared towards careers in Exercise Science and Sports Medicine, we cover all the basic topics related to any career in the Health and/or Medical Industry such as: Medicine, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Emergency Medicine, Nursing, and so much more!

HTP is a very “hands-on” class in learning skills necessary in the health fields. Students learn how to take blood pressures, resting heart rates, body fat measurements, joint range of motion measurement, sports injury taping, perform injury evaluations and much more!

Health Tech is challenging, but rewarding!
