Opening day for Four County is Aug. 18


ARCHBOLD – Opening day for all Four County Career Center students is Tuesday, Aug. 18. The Career Center takes the concept of career and technical education beyond the traditional concept of focused training for a single profession and expands it to include clusters of training in a career field. The 2015-16 school year at Four County Career Center is opening its’ doors to over 1,000 new and returning students.

Upon completing their training, students receive a Career Passport, which contains a certificate documenting their training along with verification of employability skills. If they meet the graduation requirements of their high school and pass the required state examinations, they also receive a diploma from their associated high school.

Students attend the Career Center classes starting at 9 a.m. and ending at 3 p.m. Four County Career Center follows a closed lunch period policy requiring all students to either purchase a lunch in the cafeteria or carry their own. Lunches conform to federal governmental standards for a nutritious student lunch.

All Four County Career Center associate districts provide bus transportation for students enrolled in the Career Center. Students are urged to use the transportation provided by their local district. For students who must drive cars to school, a parking area is provided at the northwest side of the school building.

School closing and delays will be broadcast over the Archbold, Bryan, Defiance, Montpelier and Napoleon radio stations as well as WTVG-13 TV and WTOL-11 TV in Toledo.

Additional information regarding the 2015-16 school year can be found on the Career Center website at www.fourcounty.net, which includes the Student Handbook.
