Porter County Career Center
VALPARAISO | The Valparaiso schools have come a long way in the past year, but a lot more needs to be done to define and prepare for what education will be like in the century ahead.
PORTAGE | Portage Township Schools could be looking to the sun or the wind to provide some of its power in the future.
VALPARAISO | On January 16, the Porter County Career Center unveiled their new solar panel project. The project was a partnership with Nipsco, and was completed by the high school students in the Electronic and Modern Machining classes.
At the root of discussions on education reform is the nearly universal concern about the outcome: Will students emerge from high school ready for college or careers? A new Northwest Indiana initiative addresses that issue.
Dillon Bishop, a senior at Chesterton High School, works with Harrison Draves, a Washington Township senior, to disconnect a solar panel at the Porter County Career Center.
