Workforce Development Task Force
South Albany High School principal Brent Belveal, Business to School Liaison Deb Burchfiel and Superintendent Maria Delapoer attended a meeting recently with Linn Benton Community College and local business and industry leaders to continue our partnership work.
Mr. Belveal has planned, with the help of the Chamber of Commerce, for 6 to 8 of his staff and a few students to tour area businesses including Selmet, ATI Wah Chang, Oregon Freeze Dry and Viper NW so they can see what skills are needed in these highly technical jobs. Teachers can then use what they learn as they develop curriculum and encourage their students to go on for further training and education.
