The Luxemburg-Casco School District is exploring the possibility of offering college-level technical education classes at the high school in the future. Superintendent Glenn Schlender says a meeting last week with NWTC and Nexus Solutions, the district’s facilities management company, could open the door to an automotive maintenance technician program offered at the school. Schlender explains the plan being discussed.
The program would be paid for through grants and other funding resources, according to Schlender. Luxemburg-Casco would be only one of three high schools in the state that would offer the accredited program. Schlender adds that a similar one-year diesel diploma program could be coming in two years. That would potentially utilize the current middle school building in Casco for alternative education courses after the seventh and eighth-grade classes are moved to the Luxemburg location.
