The Trumbull Career and Technical Center in Champion received all A’s on the state’s report card for career and technical centers.
The grades are not official, but are a simulation for the new accountability standards for technical centers. A final report will be issued in August.
The report measures graduation rates and job placement. TCTC Superintendent Wayne McClain said the results mirror the Federal Perkins Report which they have done well with in the past.
“Getting all A’s was really a shock to us. We thought we would do well perhaps but not all A’s. We are glad to have gotten that,” said McClain.
TCTC was also named a Top High Schools that Work school in Ohio by a nationwide initiative. An award ceremony was held Thursday to recognize the school.
“It is extremely important for us to be recognized. We are doing a good job. We are a school of choice, and we need to recruit students to come here. They are not forced to come here, they are given that opportunity from the 19 home schools in Trumbull County,” said McClain. “Knowing we do well at what we do is very important for those folks coming to us.”
The Mahoning County Career and Technical Center received two A’s and a B, Columbiana County earned an A,B and C. Choffin Career & Technical center in Youngstown did the worst in our area receiving an F in graduation rates.
