James Hixson Board Room
This meeting is a meeting of the Governing Board in public for the purpose of conducting the Career Center's business and is not to be considered a public community meeting. There will be time for public participation as indicated by a specified agenda item.
Mission Statement: Central Nine exists to engage and empower students by providing career-based instruction in an innovative learning environment. We make an IMPACT on our students' personal and professional SKILLS, which enables them to succeed in post-secondary and career opportunities.
As of Tuesday, June 8th, Franklin Township is the one school that has voted on the C9 building project. They voted, yes. Beech Grove and NHJ will vote before the C9 board meeting. Greenwood, Clark Pleasant, Center Grove, and Franklin Community will all vote next week. Perry will vote early in July. We will need at least six of the eight districts to vote, yes, to move the project forward.
I presented to Beech Grove's school board Tuesday evening and will present to Perry Township's board on June 14th.
We worked to get higher funding levels approved through DWD in aviation maintenance, operations, auto services, auto collision, and construction trades through an appeals process this June. The results are not back yet.
I shared data with the superintendents and showed an increase in student retention to 88% up from 85% last school year. Dual credit earned by the 1154 students was over 5100 credits. Up almost 1000. Industry recognized certifications are up 100 from last year at 349.
We currently have 1320 students enrolled for this coming fall.
COVID predictions include us starting the school year normal if all goes according to current plans. No masks, no contact tracing, and not social distancing.
