During the 2010-2011 school year a committee of teachers, counselors, and administrators analyzed the programming offered at the Career Center along with the job growth projections for the region and state. From that research, the committee gathered student and community input about potential areas for growth for the Career Center to develop and offer to students.
In June 2011 the committee made the recommendation that the district focus on expanding the Medical and Health Careers Pathway for the Career Center. The Healthcare Industry is clearly a growth industry for the Billings region and student survey results indicated a high level of interest in this career area. During the 2011-2012 school year, district leaders will work collaboratively with the medical community and the areas colleges and universities to develop a series of courses that will help prepare students for the multitude of job opportunities in healthcare.
