A-Tech Blood Drive

    A-Tech students and staff partnered with the American Red Cross for another successful blood drive. More than 100 students and staff signed up to participate. 
    Every year, Healthcare Academy students assist during the Blood Drive. Healthcare Academy Dental students assist in the snack area, while Healthcare Academy Medical students provide support while people are donating. 
    Over the course of two days, staff and students donated 104 units. Those donations can save up to 312 lives! A-Tech holds blood drives twice each year and is recognized annually by the American Red Cross with scholarships for its strong participation.

A-Tech Students on Early Placement

    Several A-Tech seniors are already applying the skills they've learned in their career technical program through the school's early placement program.
    The early placement program allows students in the second year of their career technical program to attend school for a half day and work in a related job a half day. Students are graded on their work and paid by their employer. Specific guidelines must be met and transportation to and from the work site is the student's responsibility.
    Each student has an individualized training plan listing the competencies they will learn at the work site and those they will learn at school. Students must work a minimum of 15 hours per week. Employers evaluate each student's performance by completing an Employer Rating Sheet each week. Students must complete a log sheet each week listing the job tasks they performed at the work site and review that sheet with their career technical instructor.
   If your business would like to participate in the Early Placement program, please call Mr. Brian Kimmel at 440-576-6015, ext. 1149.
