Longwood Celebrates Grand Opening of Career Center

Career Center Opens at Longwood SchoolsThe Longwood Board of Education, central administration, students and staff attended a ribbon cutting ceremony on Thursday, September 1 to celebrate the opening of a new state-of-the art facility that will provide a simulated work environment for high school students in the Alternate Learning Program (ALP).
The new Longwood Career Center (LCC) provides a wide array of resources to support students as they explore new career employment areas through a comprehensive work development curriculum, as well as response to their aptitude and interests. Students will receive vocational training in food service, hospitality, office skills and more.
“Our goal is to create a simulated work environment where our students become employees and teachers become supervisors,” said Director of Secondary Education Jennifer McCarthy. “Our students are provided with an opportunity to apply and generalize their work skills here at the LCC, as well as develop the skills necessary for employment in real-world jobs. The result will be work-based learning and employment within our own Longwood community.”
Utilizing a vacant school district building, the LCC has been completed renovated and now features an industrial kitchen, hospitality room, mock office environment and meeting room.
