Students and families who may benefit from alternative educational programs could benefit from an official new partnership between Frederick County Public Schools and Job Corps.
The mission of Woodstock-based Job Corps is to teach eligible youths the skills they need to become employable and independent, with the goal of placing them in meaningful jobs or future educational opportunities.
This partnership between Job Corps and FCPS is intended to create a common sense of purpose by setting mutually agreed upon objectives relative to the school systems’ Strategic Goals.
The objectives of this partnership are two-fold:
- Educate FCPS staff, students, and families regarding Job Corps resources and opportunities for further education.
- Provide supports for students and families who may benefit from alternative educational programs.
“Woodstock Job Corps is proud to be able to extend our reach to promote vocational training services in the Frederick County Public School System,” said Miquela Kriskovich, Outreach Manager for Job Corps. “In previous years, our campus has not had the opportunity to serve students in this area. We look forward to working closely with FCPS to provide an alternative education and training opportunity for those who may be interested in vocational trade.”
Biennial meetings will be held between the Job Corps area manager and the FCPS Community Agency School Services (CASS) coordinator. The purpose of the meetings will be to review the progress and effectiveness of the partnership.
