CHASSELL, Mich. (WLUC) - The Chassell Township School District is rolling in a trades program for high school students.
Renovations to the new classroom started this summer. The program will be in the school's former bus garage. Dry wall and installation are being done now.
Junior and senior students will learn many skills, including plumbing, welding and carpentry. The Chassell Foundation donated $16,000 for program equipment.
"Trades are coming back in the educational system and it's important especially for our community," said Howard Paramentier, superintendent. "We're very trades oriented. The bottom line is it's going to benefit our students and that's what's critical for us here in Chassell."
The superintendent says registration for the trades program is almost full. It'll start the first day of school, September 6.
