Fort Scott, Kansas – Fort Scott Community College (FSCC) is pleased to anticipate offering technical classes in Linn County at Pleasanton School District’s recently acquired facility in Pleasanton. FSCC supports the mission of increasing technical opportunities for high school students in Linn County. Program exploration is currently occurring, which has already included surveying secondary students at Pleasanton High School, Jayhawk-Linn High School, and Prairie View High School.
Programs offered will be approved through the Kansas Board of Regents for Excel in CTE funding, which provides students the opportunity to complete technical college courses without being charged tuition and most fees. These programs will meet student interest and need in Linn County, while serving a regional workforce need for business and industry. FSCC is very pleased to work with all the districts in Bourbon, Linn, and Miami Counties to ensure we are meeting the needs of students within our service area.
The next steps involve working with the school districts to determine which program or programs will be offered at the facility. Following those decisions, the school district(s) will begin renovation of the facility to meet the needs of the program(s). The goal is for secondary students to be enrolled in classes at the technical facility in Linn County for the fall 2022 semester.
