Philosophy/Belief Statement:

o We believe that as our economy continues to expand and our means of production becomes increasingly complex, the need for more and better skilled and semi-skilled craftsmen has become apparent; and that the Scioto County Career Technical Center is organized for the purpose of providing training to enable the student to be gainfully employed and to contribute directly to the general welfare of the economy which in turn supports our democratic philosophy, principles, and practices.
o We further believe that the Scioto County Career Technical Center is designed to provide the best possible training environment for today’s needs. However, we believe the campus is designed with flexibility leading to changes when necessary, to up-date and shift programs to meet new occupational opportunities as they develop. Furthermore, the campus, is used as efficiently and educationally effectively as possible for regular student training programs, for special student training programs, and for adult training programs. In full operation, the school should be in use twelve months each year and should provide facilities for training not only during the regular school day but also after school, during the evenings, and on Saturdays.
o We believe that training programs should be planned to meet the economic needs of job opportunities with opportunities in the local area given priority. Such training programs should be established on the broad range and structured into the curriculum to challenge students of varying abilities.
