CTS scholarships may be expanded

Wolf Creek Public Schools wants to be armed with a little more knowledge before making a commitment to expand its CTS scholarships

Wolf Creek Public Schools wants to be armed with a little more knowledge before making a commitment to expand its CTS scholarships to include Outreach School students.

At its regular meeting, Sept. 5, trustees discussed the possibility of including Outreach students in the $300 scholarships that are now given out exclusively to high school students.

Trustee Bob Huff was concerned as the board’s policy for the career technology studies scholarships did not include alternate schools, only public high schools.

He noted the board needs to be aware the number of students taking CTS continues to increase and he wanted to be sure that Outreach School students were not excluded from the scholarship.

“I want to be more inclusive than exclusive,” he said.

The school board was receptive to Huff’s concerns, but agreed they did not have enough information to change the policy to include Outreach School students in the CTS scholarships.

Trustees agreed to direct administration to begin the process of looking into CTS scholarships for Outreach school students.
