Career Clusters Integral Focus of Killeen ISD New Career Academy Planning

The Killeen Independent School District plans to open a new Career Academy fall 2010, which will include courses in health science, information technology and arts, audio/visual technology and communications, agriculture, food and natural resources, fire academy, cosmetology, welding, construction and automotive technology. With input from area colleges and universities and local employers, school district leaders were able this summer to lay out the planned academic framework for the school, which will cover 143,000 square feet. The new Academy is being built at a good time, as local high schools are growing, with one school above capacity—rezoning will gradually level the enrollment levels and the Academy will ease capacity issues in the district. According to Todd Martin of the Killeen ISD Public Information Office, many of the courses will satisfy core subject graduation requirements. More information
