Students who graduate from the Career Readiness Academy not only will be prepared and able to go to a trade school or community college, but can qualify for financial aid with a diploma from the program. Other changes include the new building transition. The old Winters State Preschool Center building has revived as a one-room schoolhouse with open seating and furniture and equipment appropriate for high school students. Alex May, the WJUSD IT Support Specialist said they upgraded the wifi access points for students and the internet uplink that is designed to handle up to 50 simultaneous devices. Moran said that by the 2019-2020 school year the program name will fully transition to the Career Readiness Academy at Wolfskill. Students who are interested in the Career Readiness Academy program can enroll through the WHS office by discussing the opportunity with the counseling staff. Moran said WHS counselors are starting to look to identify students who would benefit from the program. “They’re looking less for students with disciplinary problems and looking more to support students who are behind on credits or who don’t have a plan to go to college,” said Moran.]]>
