New Program at Booker T. Washington High School to Offer Training in One of Houston’s Hottest Job Sectors
A proposed new course of study at Booker T. Washington High School would provide students the chance to earn an associate’s degree and receive career training in the high-demand fields of manufacturing engineering technology. The program would operate in addition to the school’s existing engineering magnet program.
The proposal is slated for a vote at the HISD Board of Education’s regular meeting, which begins at 5 p.m. on Thursday February 9, 2012 at the Hattie Mae White Educational Support Center (4400 W. 18th Street).
The plan for Washington is part of a larger program to establish the Houston Innovative Learning Zone (HILZ) schools. The plan is a direct response to frequent requests from students, and the Houston community at large, for HISD to bolster its portfolio of Career and Technology Education offerings.
