Clean Tech ECHS Offers Virtual Info Night
The Clean Technologies & Sustainable Industries Early College High School in Malta will be holding a virtual Information Night for current high school freshmen who are interested in joining the Clean Tech ECHS P-TECH Program this school year (Spring 2021 start). School district leaders, parents and 9th grade students interested in learning more about the program are invited to attend the virtual information session via WebEx on October 21, 2020. The agenda for the evening begins at 6:30pm includes presentations from current students and program staff.
The Clean Tech ECHS was developed by the Ballston Spa Central School District in partnership with Hudson Valley Community College (HVCC) and the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) in 2011. It now has over 50 partners from business and industry, higher education, and non-profit and government agencies. The Clean Tech ECHS was awarded a NYS P-TECH grant by Governor Cuomo which expanded opportunities for students in the program to take college coursework in one of several career pathways.
Students in the program create solutions to real world problems during their experiences in the program. They also enroll in college coursework with college professors at Hudson Valley Community College's TEC-SMART in Malta (at no cost to families). Student applications are due December 11, 2020 for students to begin during the 2nd semester with high school coursework and college preparation.
