LPS and SCC To Help Build Tech High School

LINCOLN -- Plans are in the works to build a seventh high school in Lincoln. The career and technical high school will be a partnership with Southeast Community College. Students would be given the option to go to classes at the career school for two years before graduating. After that, students would receive their high school diploma, a year's worth of college credit, and progress toward industry certification. When students are done with the program, they'll have the option to attend community college to complete their industry certification or Associates Degree. The school will be built on the SCC campus, with LPS and the college splitting start-up costs, which are estimated at $25 million.
