Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! First and foremost, I'd like to thank our students, staff, families, extended families, and all of our stakeholders for all of your patience and understanding as we navigated through yet another year of COVID affecting our day to day operations. We were all asked to do things that we're not used to doing, but together, WE GOT IT DONE!! Its that spirit of cooperation and caring for our kids that makes Southern Local the special place that it is.
We are certainly excited for what this year holds. We continue to add more academic options each year. This year we are offering an online option called The Indian Academy, for those students who prefer the online option. We have also partnered with the Utica Shale Academy, now located in downtown Salineville, to offer such programs as Welding, Industrial Maintenance, Hospitality, Mechatronics, Kabota Tech, and Lincoln Electric.
All of these offerings help us fulfill our mission of getting students ready to go to work, ready to go onto higher education, or prepare them for military service after graduation. Whichever path your student chooses, its imperative that communication between home and school is constantly happening. Toward that end, please feel free to call, stop by the office, or shoot us an email any time you have questions. I look forward to hearing from you, seeing you at an event, or even talking as we're filling our gas tanks at B & S. I wish you and your student(s) a remarkable school year, and as always.....GO INDIANS!!
