Philosophy & Mission

Philosophy

In this day of rapidly expanding and ever changing technology, it is extremely important that the District have an adequate facility and programs to meet the present and future vocational needs of the adults of the Medina County community. The responsibilities for assisting students beyond high school, on the job, for additional training and education, military service or post-secondary counseling, should remain an on-going obligation of the staff.

Programs will be structured to provide the foundation on which adults may build their future lives. As a part of this overall foundation, it is vitally important to provide a wide variety of program selections and specific training in the occupations which best fit the students’ abilities, interests, and needs.

Although actual experience in preparation for the world of work is of the utmost importance, it is important to develop a sense of responsibility as it pertains to citizenship in a democratic society.

Due to the rapidly changing technology and the mobility of people in this society, the District must provide opportunities for the training and retraining of adults as their jobs change drastically or become obsolete.
