The excitement of our new video program is showing in the enrollment. Going into the end of year one with 40 students, we're expecting close to 100 for next year!!
Our High School has an enrollment of 1,050 with 57.5 percent of our students falling under the poverty line.
These students are excited to learn new skills that will carry with them into the post-high school world. Technology is all around us and as internet speeds increase, so will the amount of media we consume. With these increased speeds, online video is becoming even more popular. Our students are learning how to shoot, edit, publish and promote video in this high speed online world.
The possibilities of what our students can create with video is showing in our increased enrollment. Students are recruiting other students. We have gamers, athletes, and musicians all coming up with plans on how they can showcase their skills through video!
We are closing in on year one of the new video production program at my high school. This year we had 3 students take the challenge to enroll in the advanced video production program and create content for the high school, district and community. These students have set a high standard for the future students but the technology to edit video is limited. We are currently working with entry level PC's and a MacBook that struggles to edit 1080 video. This build will give my students the ability to edit video in a timely manner and give them the experience of what is expected in the industry.
As a Career Technical Eduction program we strive to give our students the best experience that they will have once they enter the workforce.
