Students in the Jordan School District are learning more than the "3 R's". The Career and Technical Education department has a well-earned reputation for providing high-quality programs staffed by skilled educators, who are supported with excellent equipment and training.
Students who take advantage of this great opportunity prepare to further their education or to enter the workforce with skills and experiences needed for success.
Three of those students joined JATC-South Principal Nicole Johnson on The PLACE to talk about some of the programs being offered. Sophie Muhlestein is in the Teacher Education Program, Chrissy Robinson is in Hair Design and Alexia is in EMT/Fire Science and Criminal Justice.
