Project Lead the Way (PLTW), a pre-engineering and biomedical sciences curriculum for grades 6-12, is moving into its third year at Carroll County Middle School and Carroll County High School.
“We want our students to take the PLTW classes,” said high school guidance counselor Sheree Richter. “Not only are these classes rigorous and relevant, but they are also credit-bearing college courses.”
Additionally, over the summer, PLTW officials announced that many students will not have to pay fees associated with earning college credits for PLTW courses at University of Kentucky’s College of Engineering.
Many groups have made PLTW possible in the Carroll County School District. North American Stainless, Dow Corning and the Bemis Company have all contributed financially to the initiative.
“A program like this takes a lot of support,” Richter said. “We are fortunate to have groups willing to invest in the future of our students.”
