Yesterday, 15 students from Discovery, Mark Morris & R. A. Long visited Perry Technical Institute in Yakima, WA. While at Perry Tech they toured many programs that are offered: Construction, Agriculture Tech, Auto Mechanic, Welding, Machining, Electrical, Plumbing and Instrumentation & Automation. Their hosts explained that going to Perry Tech is like having a job, you attend year round, clock in and out. Hours are approximately from 7am to 4pm depending on program. We saw classes in session in the classroom doing book work and in the labs. During the tour it was very gratifying to see former Longview School District students hard at work in the classrooms. Most, if not all of the students, were excited to see what programs were offered. Seeing the students at Perry Tech gave them a better idea of what Perry Tech has to offer.
