Kansas City, Missouri — As students of all ages are ready to return to classrooms this month, some teachers are already getting a head start.
On Thursday, a group of local teachers participated in an “external training” program with the Grandview C-4 School District at the Kansas City National Security Campus.
Teachers were trained in advanced manufacturing and trade skills.
“There is an unprecedented opportunity for high school graduates to acquire the technical skills to land high-paying jobs,” said Brad Franklin, a teacher at Grandview High School.
Starting wages for advanced manufacturing jobs can exceed $30 an hour.
The program ran until Friday.
