GENERAL INFORMATION

Career and technical education courses help students explore their interests and career possibilities, and prepare for a career of interest. Content of career and technical education courses includes academic subject matter taught with relevance to the real world, job-related activities and workplace ethics. At Tucker, CTE students can earn high school credit and college credit while working toward a specific nationally recognized certification. Most Career & Technical Education programs are 3 credits per semester. All programs are open to Junior and Senior students, with the exception of ICE and CNA which is only open to senior students, with additional pre-requisites. Students in grade 10 will be admitted with permission on an individual basis if there is room in the program requested.  All programs are offered both morning (a.m.) and afternoon (p.m.) unless otherwise noted.

The Kindness Rally is set for 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, April 25, 2014, at the Marion High School gym. Features will include bounce houses, an obstacle course, dunk tank (where principals and other administrators will take the plunge), food, and more.

Tickets to be used for the carnival attractions will be four for $1, and proceeds will fund continuing anti-bullying efforts throughout the school system. The Marion High School FOR TAXII Club (Friends of Rachel / Teens Against Xtreme Inappropriate Interactions), which helps organize and run the Kindness Rally, will also be selling T-shirts and bracelets as a fundraiser.

Doors will open and ticket sales will begin at 5:30 p.m.

The Chain Reaction Ceremony is set for 6 p.m. The ceremony will feature the MHS JROTC presenting the flag, along with performances by the MHS and McCulloch Junior High School choirs, the MHS band, presentation of Student Kindness Awards and messages from district administrators. Students from each school will also participate in the parade of kindness chains from each school, with each link in the chains representing a kind act noticed this school year.


Marion Community Schools is proud of our students and staff who are starting a chain reaction of kindness and compassion and making positive changes in our schools and community. We hope that students of all ages and their families, along with community members, will come and help us celebrate at the second annual Kindness Rally!

C-T: Students scope potential careers

Posted on Mar. 07 2014 by Patricia Gibson, Communications Director
From the Chronicle-Tribune

One of Tucker Career and Technology Center’s main goals is to prepare students for their next step, whether that’s in a dorm room or in an office, and the college and career fair is a big part of achieving that goal.

For the second year, Tucker hosted a college and career fair Thursday with vendors from Indiana universities and businesses providing information to interested students and families. The fair also doubles as an open house for Tucker students to step into the tech ed classrooms before they enroll.

“It’s our spring open house for all of our incoming students and all of our current students and parents in the community to come in, see the classrooms and meet the teachers to see what types of projects our students do,” said Valerie Janowski-Human, guidance counselor. “As kind of an added bonus, we thought it would be cool to add a college and career fair so that seniors and other community members can come in and talk to colleges, talk to local business, especially the ones that are hiring, to see what their requirements are and learn more about them.”
