Community Conversation Highlights from March 21, 2023
The School Board held a Community Conversation at River Ridge High School on the skilled trades at North Thurston Public Schools. The Board and community members visited RRHS classrooms to learn about three of the many Career and Technical Education (CTE) offerings at our schools:
Automotive & Material Science
Manufacturing & Robotics
More than 1,100 NTPS high school students were enrolled in skilled trades classes in Fall 2022!
The group then discussed what types of opportunities we want for our youth as they explore careers in the trades, and what could be done to further support skilled trades in our community.
This Community Conversation supports Strategic Plan Goal 3 Outcome B: Increased percentage of students applying learning to collaboratively engage in solving relevant challenges within the classroom, school, and community.
The board holds a work session to discuss the Community Conversation and will issue a Board Determination.
