Brockway School District receives funding from career program

Brockway –

Governor Tom Wolf announced new funding for Brockway Area School District through Pennsylvania’s Manufacturing PA Training-to-Career Program to better prepare students for a career in machining or manufacturing after graduation.

The $25,000 in funding will be used to purchase a Computer Numerical Control router, which will allow Brockway Junior-Senior High School to provide students with hands-on experience using the machines and programs they will encounter in an industrial setting.

The CNC router will aid students in acquiring new skills while improving and reinforcing skills they currently use in class, such as programming, engineering, woodworking, plotting, and Computer-Aided Design.

Brockway School District’s agriculture education teacher Kyle Norman said, “Even though Brockway is a small rural school, we are able to give our students a new experience that will help them be better prepared to enter the workforce or a trade school.”

Brockway Schools works closely with local industries and the community through their school to work program.
