For April 13-May 1, please click on the staff link and select your teacher. Specific directions are listed there.
ALSO, be sure you are submitting your completed work. Thank you!
Notes and Announcements:
We have focused on the following:
- Student Assignments: Teachers have planned student lessons and posted to individual teacher webpages. Hard copies have also been provided to the high schools and to principals. Students who have online curriculum assignments (Tooling U, Today’s Class, G-Metrix, and Pharmacy) need to completely finish all of these so that they will be in good standing when holds are lifted on industry certifications. All assignments need to be submitted by email, turned into the high school, or pictures taken of completed work and submitted.
- Dual Credit: Teachers have been working with students and SKYCTC to ensure coursework is being completed and all expectations and obligations are being met.
- We are also communicating with SKYCTC to prepare for Fall 2020 Dual Credit Registrations. Any student in Business, Health Sciences, Electricity, Welding or interested in Industrial Maintenance and would like to take courses for dual credit needs to access our website and go to the staff member’s page and find the link to the SKYCTC dual credit application and instructions. This process needs to be completed prior to August for efficiency in registration.
- Important Note: We were just informed that all placement test requirements for the upcoming year (Fall 2020-Spring 2021) have been lifted. GPA’s will be the only requirement and vary based on course requests. (Incoming freshmen may take dual credit even though they won’t have a GPA yet as long as they get teacher/counselor/principal recommendation.)
- Industry Certifications: We are maintaining communication with the state level advisors regarding Industry Certifications. Arrangements will be made to allow seniors ready to certify the opportunity to come in and complete remaining steps for certifications once holds are lifted and gathering is allowed for such processes. We will work with underclassmen to continue to gain skills needed and be ready to certify by the time they are a senior. It is important that students are in good standing in order to certify—students will be in good standing by completing posted assignments or the hard copies.
- Carl Perkins Grant: We have collaborated on needs for our school and successfully completed and submitted our grant. We have been awarded a plasma cutter for Welding Technology, a programmer and other tools for Automotive Technology, as well as a sublimation machine for Business Education.

ANNOUNCEMENT FOR SKYCTC DUAL CREDIT STUDENTS:
We are very sorry for the interruption during the Zoom meeting.
Note from Mrs. Alison Bechtold regarding Zoom interruption:
Well, obviously that did not go as planned! I am so sorry, and please pass on our sincere apologies to your students and parents who may have been tuning in. We were not aware of the hacking issues Zoom has been encountering lately. We will reschedule our session very soon using a more secure platform and hope that you will join us again.
We have scheduled a Zoom session for this Friday, April 3rd at 1:00PM CST to address any and all questions about dual credit – whether those be about current classes, billing, payment, scholarships, placement testing, next year’s enrollment, and beyond. We may not have every answer right now, but we will share all of the information we have and make note of anything we need to follow up on. After this initial online session, we plan to work with you to schedule school-specific sessions for your students/parents if that would be helpful.
Please share the Zoom meeting info below with your parents and students, and we hope you will be able to join us Friday.

UPDATE For March 30-April 3
ATC Assignment for
Automotive, Business (non dual credit), Carpentry, Electricity, Welding, Wood Pro, Monroe Health Sciences--Principles of Health Science only
(Dual Credit may have additional requirements from the college.)
Monroe County High School Students
For March 30-April 3, your assignment is to write a general essay that could be used in many scholarship applications. For NTI assignment purposes, please write or type a 1 ½ -2 page essay on why you should be the recipient of a scholarship, your immediate plans after graduation, and your goals for the next 5 years.
If you are a Monroe County High School senior, please consider doing this for the Stephens' Manufacturing Scholarship and be sure that it is turned into the ATC or the high school’s scholarship drop box by April 13th at 2:45 so that it can be considered for one of the $500 scholarships. Be sure you have it submitted on time if you want to be considered and aren't doing it for NTI purposes only.
If you are an underclassmen or a Metcalfe County High School student, please consider this great, worthwhile practice and as a draft for the scholarship essays you will need as a senior. If you are an underclassmen, you can write it from the perspective that you are a senior…this can help you to think about your current plans and goals and make sure you are on the right track to achieve what you want by the time you are a senior. Then, when you are a senior, you can take this draft and update it. If you are a Metcalfe student, you can write it for a scholarship offered at Metcalfe County High.
*If you are a senior and turn it in by April 13th to be considered for the scholarship, Mrs. Rowland will also make a copy of it and give it to your ATC teacher(s).
If you are doing it for NTI purposes, you can save it until we return, you can email or drop off at the high school.
