Local Career & Technical Center Programs Ranked in State

Students enrolled in most courses at the New Albany School of Career and Technical Education take a state test each year.   The MS-CPAS2 (Mississippi Career Planning and Assessment System, Edition 2) is the test given to students in career and technical education programs.  The assessment is based on the career and technical curriculum taught in the classroom throughout the year.

Each year, career and technical programs are ranked individually with all programs throughout the state and rankings are based on assessment results.  Rankings for the 2016-2017 school year were released on May 18.

Bert Anderson who teaches Agriculture Science classes said that the students are exposed to a wide array of experiences in the classroom with instruction, assessments, and hands-on projects and it is preparing them for when they enter the work force or move on to a college setting.

The New Albany School of Career & Technical Education had nineteen areas tested.  Of those tested, nine were ranked in the top ten and fifteen were ranked in the top 15 in the state.

Those programs ranking in the top ten include:  Business Fundamentals (6th); Engineering II (10th); Marketing (2nd); Concepts of Agriculture (7th); Agriculture Animals (8th); Agriculture Environment (1st); Architechture/Drafting (5th); Construction Core (10th); Health Science Core (10th).

Also ranking in the top fifteen in the state were:  Automotive II, Agriculture Plants, Carpentry, Digital Media Technology, Early Childhood I, and Health Sciences II.

“Our students work hard preparing for the CPAS test all year long,” said Alison Moore, Business Instructor.  “It’s always exciting when the rankings come out, and we get to see how well our students did compared to other students across the state.”

John Ferrell, Director, explained that there was some worry that there might be a decline in the CPAS scores because of the heavy emphasis that the school placed on Work Keys certification this year.  “Our teachers stepped up to the challenge and responded with another great year of test scores, as well as excelling with competitions and the Work Keys program,” Ferrell said.

New Albany Students Attend Career & Technology Day

The New Albany School of Career & Technical Education hosted “Career & Technology Day” on Friday, May 5 on the campus of New Albany High School.

Career and Technology Day began as Technology Day in 2009 to expose high school students to the technology used in industries and careers in the northeast Mississippi area. The event has been held annually since 2009 and has grown to include more college and career related information.

This year the Career and Tech Day was expanded to include students from 3rd-8th grade in the New Albany School District.  Students from New Albany Elementary School and New Albany Middle School were able to participate in this year’s event and received backpacks to place the career information they received during the day.

Career and Technology Day was funded through the “PRIDE through College and Career Awareness” grant that the New Albany School District received through funding from the Toyota Wellspring Fund.

More than twenty-five exhibitors and presenters were on hand to inform students about their careers, as well as describe the technology that is used in their careers.   Vendors included:  Blue Mountain College; Northeast Mississippi Community College; University of Mississippi; MSU Extension Service; Miracle Ear; Rowan Dentistry; Mississippi Game and Fish; Mississippi Forestry Commission, U.S. Army Corp of Engineers; Leggett and Platt; MooreSites; Cooper Electric; BNA Bank; New Albany Light, Gas, & Water; Tennessee Valley Authority; Baptist Memorial Hospital-Union County; New Albany Police Department; New Albany Fire Department; Union County Sheriff’s Department; Northeast Union County Volunteer Fire Department; Mississippi Highway Patrol; Mississippi National Guard; Mississippi Department of Health; Mississippi Department of Human Services; and WTVA News.
