BUFFALO, Mo. (KY3) – Students in the Dallas County School District will start the school year with a brand new tech center.
Superintendent Tim Ryan said the center will host courses in agriculture, welding, cybersecurity and even nursing. This is a $ 12 million project that is paid for by a lease-to-own obligation, which was approved by voters in 2019.
“This is a huge benefit to our own community because our taxpayers want the opportunity for our students to enter the workforce directly, into these high paying jobs right out of high school,” Ryan said. .
The center will be attached to Buffalo High School, saving students’ time as the old facility was obsolete and located 8 miles north of Louisburg.
Ryan said the building measures 56,000 square feet and offers students endless possibilities to prepare for their future careers.
He said it would benefit not only the students in the district, but also members of the community interested in taking classes.
“In Dallas County, you can actually go to an area career center and get exactly the same training as our students,” Ryan said. “We will also have the option, since we are now in Buffalo, to have more community education programs that could take place in the evenings for our adult clients. “
Ryan said there will be a ribbon cut for the whole community to see the new tech center.
