Courses offered in machining and electrical studies
Did you know that Ray-Pec High School students can learn computer integrated machining and manufacturing skills? Did you know that the high school also offers a two-year program in electrical studies?

Both of these programs are offered at the new LEAD Center in Raymore. LEAD stands for Learning, Experiences, And Discovery.

In the machining program, students earn dual credit through Metropolitan Community College. The courses prepare students for jobs in machining and manufacturing immediately after graduation or to pursue additional education toward an engineering degree.

In the Electrical Studies program, students receive hands-on training to install and maintain electrical systems in residential and commercial wiring, AC/DC circuits, low voltage wiring, estimating, and the National Electric Code.

Beginning with fall 2023, a new Carpentry program will be offered. For details on the programs offered at the LEAD Center, look at the website. Students can also visit with counselors at the high school as they prepare to select courses for next year.

(In addition to these programs, other career and technical training is available through the District's partnerships with Cass Career Center, Summit Technology Academy, and Southland CAPS.)
Information about inclement weather days
During the 2022-2023 school year, inclement weather days will result in a virtual instruction day.

This means that students will learn at home on that day, and the school day will not be made up later in the year. For students in the Virtual Instruction Program of Ray-Pec (VIPR), classes will continue as usual. Students who go to school in person will attend classes online or have learning activities pre-assigned so that learning can continue on inclement weather days.

The decision to implement a virtual instruction day will be made as early as possible - preferably the night before. Sometimes conditions change overnight. In the event of rapidly changing weather conditions, a weather announcement may be made on the day of the cancellation. In those instances, the District will try to send make the notification by 5:30 a.m.
