The Clark County (Nev.) district is opening a school focused on construction technology and advanced manufacturing.
The yet-to-be-named school in Las Vegas will help students prepare for careers in those fields and earn experience and credentials, reports The Nevada Independent.
The school will accommodate about 250 students when it opens later this year and will expand in future years.
The construction program will include general construction skills, as well as foundational skills related to electrical, plumbing and HVAC, and framing systems, the district said.
Classes in the manufacturing program will focus on safety, engineering design, power systems and principles related to electronics and instrumentation. The students will work with specialized equipment, including power tools.
The school will target students who may not be succeeding academically at a traditional high school.
