TECHNOLOGY CENTERS THAT WORK
Technology Centers That Work (TCTW) is a national effort designed to assist career and technology centers in preparing graduates for post-secondary studies and employment in high-demand, high-wage, high-skill fields.
The mission of schools in the TCTW network is to create an environment that motivates students to make the effort to succeed. Technology Center leaders and teachers can take these actions to motivate students to high levels:
The TCTW initiative builds the capacity of technology center staff to teach essential college- and career-readiness courses through authentic projects, problems and activities to help more students complete high school and graduate prepared for a wide variety of post-secondary and employment opportunities.
Western Area Career & Technology Center, in cooperation with our nine sending schools, encourages all our students to meet these challenges.
