Yadkin Valley Students and CTE Staff Promote the IT Academy Model

DCS IT Academy
Click image for more!
On April 1, 2016 students at Yadkin Valley Regional Career Academy and members of our CTE staff had the unique opportunity to Skype with the South African Delegation and Microsoft Leadership Team. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss and promote the IT Academy model that is currently offered in a number of North Carolina school districts. This program offers high school students the opportunity to become certified in Microsoft Office 2013 with the option to test at the Expert level. Microsoft is currently working with South Africa to develop Academies in their country similar to those being offered in North Carolina. CTE State Consultants asked Davidson County Schools to serve as an example of a successful Microsoft Academy and we were honored to take part. Davidson County Schools was one of the first districts in our state to create a local school board policy that focuses on the Microsoft Credentials. By passing the Microsoft Office Specialist Certification test,  students show that they have mastered the skills necessary to compete in the industry. Currently, every high school in DCS offers the Microsoft Information Technology Academy. We are very proud of our CTE students and staff who have made this program a model of success to be showcased for
other districts. Click here to read the Dispatch article about this event.
