Some of Bradley County Schools’ career and technical education classes will soon reap the benefits of a sizable grant the district received this school year.
The Tennessee Department of Education awarded the district a CTE Equipment Grant totaling $239,947, which is part of the $15 million awarded to districts statewide.
“We are excited about what this is going to be adding for us in our health science and advanced manufacturing programs,” said Arlette Robinson, CTE director for Bradley County Schools. “There will be more opportunities for students to practice their skills in the classroom.”
With the money, the district is planning to buy a geriatric simulator, hospital beds, vital signs equipment and specialized mannequins to be used for the health science classes at the Bradley Central and Walker Valley high schools.
