The ABLE/GED® classes that are offered in partnership with the Delaware County Department of Job and Family services have relocated from the Hayes County Building to Delaware City Vineyard, 425 S.
DACC's IT Director has had had a busy spring! Wayne Strunk teaches our Self Defense Against Criminal Attack class for Adult Education at DACC, which he also teaches in Marion. Here is an article from the Marion Star that offers some highlights from his class.
As we near graduation, we want to congratulate all of the graduates not only those who attend Delaware Area Career Center, but all area schools and colleges. The successful completion of any educational experience is a testament of hard work, not only to the students, but to the parents/guardians, support system, and the instructors and educational staff who gave them support along the way.
Congratulations to all ….. enjoy and celebrate safely.
We are close to that time when we “wear the green” in honor of that special day we recognize as St. Patrick’s Day. At DACC, green and blue are our logo colors. We also see the significance of green in several of our programs. You will be sure to notice it, if you take a clear look. Of course, it is an easy consideration for the Landscaping and Turf Management program – they certainly grow green plants. But the general public might not see all of the connections our programs have to the great outdoors or to areas of green technology. So, in order to help color your world with information, consider the following:
Each year an amazing group of students known as Ambassadors are selected to help promote DACC in recruitment and public relations efforts. Over the past year I have had the privilege of working with 29 Ambassadors. They have lead hands-on activities at community events, conducted career awareness presentations at elementary, middle, and high schools, and assisted with recruitment events within the school. These senior students have done a wonderful job promoting DACC during their senior year! Read about their journey through high school on the student blog page.
We are recruiting for our Power Line Technician Class that will start on April 1. If you know anyone who loves to be outdoors, is not afraid of heights and is eager to work hard and earn good money, this may be a great opportunity. At the Delaware Area Career Center we offer a 900 hour course that runs from April to December 2013.
Do you know that the GED® test is changing in 2014 and that the cost will increase from the current $40 to $120? Just by completing the GED® test this year, you can save $80! The current version of the GED® test is expiring at the end of 2013, and your scores will expire too if you don’t finish and pass the GED® by then.
The Delaware Area Career Center now offers a new way to pay students fees on-line! Parents can access the new on-line payment website by going to the Parent Section of our district website, then click on SPS EZpay logo to be transferred over to the payment site. Parents only need the student’s name and ID number to complete the on-line registration.
I just want to remind everyone that now is the time to finish your GED. There is only one year left until the test changes because the last day to take the current GED test in Ohio is December 21, 2013. The new test will be computer based and will increase in cost from $40 to $120. Not only will it be more expensive, it will also be more challenging, so make it your New Year’s resolution to complete your GED studies in 2013! Classes start the week of January 7. Please visit our
