The Board of Education unanimously voted to approve a new career center for Waterloo schools.

The proposal would enact the Career and Technical Education plan. The plan would have a goal of re-engaging students of higher levels to better prepare them for life after high school.

The program has been implemented in other schools in Iowa. It shows increases in the percentage of students that graduate and the number of students likely to continue their education. The proposal will now go to a bond vote.
