RHS Launches Construction Program

Our Rosemont High has expanded its engineering pathway program called Engineering, Construction, Design through a partnership with representatives from the construction trades throughout the region. RHS Principal Liz Vigil, and teachers Dave Stafford and Debbi Watson, reported to the RCA Board on this new program, as well as other high successful RHS student programs such as its robotics team that competed well at the national level.

With the help of Rob Fong, formerly President of the SCUSD Board of Education and also a former member of the Sacramento City Council, the trade unions have decided to invest in one high school, fortunately Rosemont, to bring materials, new classrooms and workshops, staffing, etc. to add a construction trades “arm” to the engineering pathway to give students another option for career opportunities. All students in the program will gain a solid engineering foundation in 9th and 10th grade and then choose between an engineering focus or a construction focus in the 11th grade. Students who choose the construction technology focus would leave Rosemont with the skills necessary to enter paid apprenticeships and eventually earn journeyman status in addition to a wide range of other career opportunities in this area. Rosemont will basically be the one game in town for this special career development program. Spread the word!
