JSD agreement with UAS auto classes halts
The facility use agreement between Juneau School District and the University of Alaska Southeast to provide high school students automotive classes will come to an end this school year.

The UAS Technical Education Center (UAS TEC) is expanding their mining technology program in their facility based on university and legislative priorities.

As a result, the District will not be able to offer high school students the Automotive I and II courses at the Tech Center and is exploring alternative facilities and courses.

The District will be able to continue to offer high school students the Small Engines Course currently taught in the UAS TEC facility, as it can be offered without this facility.

The District and UAS provide high school students with the dual credit-high school and university credit from other partnership agreements for high school courses taught at the JDHS by district teachers including Creative Woods, Basic Construction, CAD I, CAD II, and Metals I.
