Save Garrett Academy of Technology

We must keep Garrett Academy of Technology open. The school recently went from offering 13 trades to offering 8 trades.  The school district should have added trades rather than cut trades.

With all the building and manufacturing going on in the tri-county area, trades should have been increased. Trades such as plumbing, electrical, heating and air, metal fabrication should be marketed rather than gotten rid of.  

The above trends are not sustainable. 

Let's ask the CCSB and the superintendant to give us a viable plan to keep Garrett Academy open with its trades.

Why close a successful program. Let's ask CCSD to ensure that K-12 truly prepares scholars for success. This success includes keeping much needed trades and continuing with a school that provides high school diplomas.
