EHS ranked fifth for MVCTC attendance

EATON — Eaton High School is ranked number five for attendance in Miami Valley Career Technical Center’s (MVCTC) districts. According to MVCTC liaison Terry Parks, there will be 1,014 juniors and 771 seniors attending MVCTC this fall. That is a total of 1,785 students attending MVCTC for the 2017-2018 school year. Out of that total, 95 are Eaton students.

During the Eaton Community Schools Board of Education meeting on Thursday, Aug. 11, board member Terry Parks presented his MVCTC report, and shared the statistics.

He also noted, there have been infrastructure problems on the MVCTC campus recently which have impacted summer maintenance.

“Last week a major waterline on campus ruptured,” he said. “This is one of the reasons why your vote for the bond levy in November is very important. The school was built in late 1960s and a lot of stuff is going bad. We’ve had electrical problems over the summer as well, knocking out air conditioning for a period of time. I realize that we didn’t have any students there, but it does create a disruption for staff.”

In other MVCTC news:

•There will be a new satellite program at Bethel and Milton-Union this fall.

•Northmont is developing a career alternative school.
