Meade County Schools and Elizabethtown Community and Technical College Expand Educational Partnership
Meade County Schools and Elizabethtown Community and Technical College officials have announced a new partnership that will enhance and expand educational programs for Meade County residents.
"The expansion of our partnership with Elizabethtown Community and Technical College will help ensure that all students are equipped with the skills needed to earn a good living upon graduation,” said Dr. John Millay, superintendent of Meade County Schools. "Dr. Thelma White and the ECTC community have worked side-by-side with us to realize our shared vision of creating a facility that is a model for educational excellence and achievement.”
Earlier this year, the Meade County Board of Education announced a $14 million renovation and expansion of the Meade County Area Technology Center (ATC), which is located on the Meade County High School campus. The renovation of the existing facility and the addition of nearly 50,000-sq-ft. will provide space for career pathway programs, college-level courses and continuing education opportunities for Meade County students. Meade County’s adult education programs, which are coordinated by ECTC, also will be housed in the expanded facility, enhancing access to these programs.
Dr. Millay noted that Meade County High School students have 26 career pathway programs from which to choose. Many of those pathways align closely with ECTC’s technical programs.
“With Dr. White and members of the ECTC faculty, we have fine-tuned our programs to ensure that they meet society’s needs and current industry standards,” he said.
Members of the ECTC technical programs faculty also consulted on the design of educational spaces as well as selection of new equipment.
"We're very pleased to work with Dr. John Millay and Meade County teachers and staff to help design programs that will lead to a smooth transition to college and, ultimately, high demand, high wage jobs," Dr. White said. "The expansion of educational programs and services will give students exciting career and educational options and contribute greatly to the economic development of Meade County and the surrounding area."
The Meade County ATC was built in 1975 and received some minor improvements in the early 1990s. The renovation will include upgrades to each of the existing high bay areas for welding, automotive, heating, ventilation and air conditioning, emergency medical technical and carpentry programs. Additional space will be added for the existing pre-nursing and marketing programs. Also planned is space for four new programs – allied health, information technology, robotics and machine tool/industrial maintenance.
When construction is completed in August 2017, the Meade County facility will be one of the most advanced and comprehensive technical schools in Kentucky. Sherman/Carter/Barnhart, Lexington is project architect.
