The Litchfield C.U.S.D. #12 school district is hosting a public event to
announce its receipt of an $8.6 million DCEO grant. The grant will be used
to re-develop an existing warehouse within the City of Litchfield’s Industrial
Park for Career & Technical Training to help meet regional workforce
demand. The facility is slated to become a regional career center and will
help serve CTE programming needs for potentially ten K-12 Districts
located in Montgomery & Macoupin Counties. The region is also partnering
with its local community colleges (i.e. Lincoln Land Community College &
Lewis and Clark Community College) to provide dual credit CTE
programming opportunities for H.S. and post-H.S. students.
