Grants for Armijo Shop Classes

Royce Guo, Co-Editor-in-Chief / School News editor

Career Technical Education (CTE) programs build technical skills and training necessary to succeed in future careers in applied sciences, skilled trades, modern technologies, and career preparation. CTE provides students vocational resources to succeed in a skills and knowledge based economy through educational programs such as Armijo’s welding and media academy pathways.

On October 11, 2018, the governing board of the Fairfield-Suisun School District voted in favor of moving forward with an application for grant funding through Proposition 51. Proposition 51, passed on the November 8, 2016 ballot, authorized $9 billion in bonds to fund improvement and modernization of K-12 and community college facilities. The grant from the California Department of Education would provide the creation of a welding vocational program in addition to improved CTE facilities at Armijo High School.

Should the grant be approved, the Fairfield-Suisun School District could receive up to $2.7 million to support CTE upgrades at Armijo High School. According to the Daily Republic, improvements would also include “site work repairs and replacement to include asphalt paving and fencing; an additional outdoor teaching area with roll-up doors and shade structure; and upgrades to electrical and fire systems.”

The next FSUSD board meeting will take place at 2490 Hilborn Road, Fairfield on
