TECHNOLOGY EDUCATION POLICY
Because of the need for safety in the technology complex, it may at times become necessary to remove a student from a technology class.  If such a situation occurs, the following procedures will be put into effect:
  1.   A verbal warning will be given to the student that his/her safety procedures must immediately be improved.
  2.  Should improvement not take place, the student will be sent to the high school principal to be placed on detention.
  3.   If improvement still does not occur, a conference will be held between the student, a parent, the high school principal and school counselor.
  4.   Any further violations will result in removal of said student from class.

  • COMPUTER AIDED DESIGN I-MECHANICAL (ELECTIVE)

This is an introductory course designed to introduce the student to computer-aided mechanical design.  Students will develop problem-solving skills and apply design concepts using modern 3D solid modeling CAD software.  This course will emphasize the design development process of a product and how a model of that product is produced, analyzed, and evaluated using a computer- aided design package.
