CGRESD Career & Technical Education Millage on May Ballot
Jan. 28, 2016
(CLARE) – The Clare-Gladwin Regional Education Service District will ask voters to consider a millage request this spring that would help fund its Career & Technical Education (CTE) programs.
At its regular meeting Wednesday night, the CGRESD Board of Education unanimously approved placing the 10-year, 1-mill request on the May 3 ballot in Clare and Gladwin Counties. The funds generated would support the organization’s CTE program, which delivers essential vocational instruction to juniors and seniors from Clare, Gladwin, Harrison, Beaverton and Farwell every school year.
CGRESD Superintendent Sheryl Presler said the board feels that this is a crucial juncture for CTE, which provides courses that have been cut in local school districts. Those courses include study in areas such as construction trades, health occupations, culinary arts, automotive technology, education occupations, digital media and criminal justice.
CTE's Culinary Arts students prepared and served lunches for the Harrison Middle School Eighth Grade Girls Luncheon on Friday. This formal luncheon is an annual event hosted at Mid-Michigan Community College and sponsored by the Harrison Women’s Association.
