Pending Board approval there will be a new Manufacturing Program for the 2020-2021 school year for Juniors and Seniors through Waubonsee Community College.   

Batavia Public Schools has significantly invested in providing options for students as they exit our schools and embark on the next phase of their education, whether that is college or enlisting in the military or going directly into the workforce. 

To assist students in identifying a potential career path and provide them with post-secondary experiences that would facilitate their chances for upward mobility within the advanced manufacturing sector, Batavia Public Schools will partner with WCC to bridge high school and the work world. This potential opportunity not only benefits our students but also forms positive partnerships with an industry in need of high-quality candidates who they are willing to further train in their specialty. 

The Batavia/WCC partnership for manufacturing would provide high school students with 20 or more credits towards one of the following degrees or certificates and include an on-the-job internship experience:

  • Automation Technology
  • Computer-Aided Design and Drafting
  • Machine Tool Technology

Students would need to provide his/her own transportation to and from WCC and to and from any work experiences. 

Spots are limited—contact your counselor or Mrs. Buttels for additional information.
