The Luxemburg-Casco School District was one of two schools to receive the biggest grant from the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development. The DWD presented a half-million dollars to 16 school districts in the state to help fund technical education equipment. David Gordon, career and technical education coordinator, says the grant will really help students looking for careers in advanced manufacturing. He explains what will be done with the grant money and the community partnership the school has with D & S Machine Service and Olson Fabrication.
Gordon says about 40 Luxemburg-Casco High School students are expected to benefit from the new equipment beginning this year.
