Sending School Presentations
Orientations are given at each of the participating sending schools to familiarize students with the career choices available at Crawford Tech.
All 9th grade students tour the current 17 shops at Crawford Tech. Immediately following Tours – all interested 9th, 10th and 11th grade students submit applications, signed by their parent/guardian, to their high school counselor. The sending school furnishes additional information, including past academic records, performance in any prerequisite courses for particular programs, and attendance records.
All interested students are encouraged to come to Crawford Tech’s Open House event. This allows for students and parents to meet program instructors and ask questions prior to making program choices on their application
Each applicant is interviewed by the Crawford Tech Counselor or Special Populations Coordinator. The interview encourages students to review their program choices and connect them to current and past experiences, as well as future post-secondary goals.
Each applicant spends a half-day at Crawford Tech in a work session in the shop(s) of their choice. This permits each student to get “hands-on” experience and to be evaluated by the instructor in the area(s) in which he/she might be interested.
The number of openings for each program is determined and selections are made on an equal opportunity basis until all openings are filled. Each student will receive an acceptance or wait-list notice in the mail. Notices must be reviewed and signed by the student as well as their parent/guardian and then submitted to the school.
As an interested student or the parent/guardian of a 9th grade student, you need to be aware of the opportunities available to you/your student at Crawford County Career & Technical Center. With careful planning, all high school students can attend Crawford Tech and complete all graduation requirements at the sending high school. It is also possible for students who attend Crawford Tech to continue their education after high school graduation at college or post secondary trade and technical schools. We encourage parents to assist their student in planning for their future. Please feel free to call Mrs. Laura Peterson, Chairperson of Student Services, at (814) 724-6024, ext. 208, if you have any questions.
