Lakewood Schools Awarded Funds of Technical Education Programs – WHIZ

More than $2.7 million is coming to Licking County to support career-technical education programs.

State Senator Tim Schaffer said in the 20th District Lakewood schools will receive $530,916.01 and Licking Heights $2,213,510.14.

These dollars come from the Career Technical Education Equipment Grant program which funds the purchase of updated equipment for career-technical programs. 56 schools across Ohio will receive more than $67.7 million from this program to expand their reach to an additional 10,345 students.

The program was allocated money in House Bill 33, the state’s main operating budget. The second round of the Career Technical Education Equipment Grant will open later this spring. Schools interested in applying can do so here.
