The Sno-Isle TECH application for the 2019-20 school year will be available online starting on February 7. Only current Sophomores and Juniors can apply. Students who submit their application as soon as possible, after it becomes available online, will have the best opportunity for an interview in their program of choice. The application will remain open until all programs are full, but apply early for best selection as some programs fill quickly!
The next Sno-Isle TECH Open House will be on Thursday, February 7, from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. This event is open to the public. Meet teachers and current students from the 22 Career and Technical Education Classes and get your questions answered.
The ASVAB (Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery) career assessment test is provided at least once a year at SHS, at no charge to students. This year, the test was given on November 14. The duration of the test will last for 1-3 hours, depending on the student. For students that are considering college or tech school, or not planning on continued education after high school, this test can be helpful. Results may spur the students into a specific program of study at an institution or guide them into a career pathway. The test is divided into sections, much like the ACT/SAT. The sections are divided into Math, English and Vocational. The results will be interpreted with ASVAB Career Exploration Program personnel at SHS a few weeks after the test. For students considering a military career, this test is also used as an assessment tool for job placement. Military personnel are involved in administering this test.
