SANDPOINT — Idaho PTECH Network announced Thursday it’s expanding a partnership with InsideTrack to provide rural high schoolers with coaching.
Here in the Magic Valley, Jerome High School is a participating school.
Students can use mobile devices to ask questions of their coach and get quick responses. They also get resources to learn more about possible careers that may interest them.
Here in the Gem State, 61 percent of jobs will require higher education by 2018. But only one-third of the state’s residents have the qualifications to fill those openings.
Idaho PTECH was created in 2014, aiming to help students at rural high schools prepare to meet workforce needs.
