Spearfish School District Considers New CTE Center

Members of the Spearfish School Board recently discussed the school district’s long-term goals, including the creation of a freestanding career and technology education (CTE) center near the existing Spearfish High School, reports the Black Hills Pioneer.

The center would potentially be located north of the high school and east of the existing tennis courts. The new center would house all existing CTE courses offered by the school district, as well as allow for space for additional programs. According to Superintendent Kirk Easton, the center would be a “community venture” that could partner with local businesses to help educate and train students to become part of the area’s future workforce.

The estimated cost of the CTE center would range between $8 million and $10 million, based on similar centers constructed elsewhere in South Dakota. Spearfish’s School Board directed Easton to acquire further information on cost and planning from Williams and Associates Architecture, Inc..
