. Career Assessment
Any student at least 14 years old who resides in the Warren County Career-Technical Planning District may be scheduled for a Career Assessment. Students visit the Career Assessment Lab for one or two days to investigate career interests and skills and consider future educational and career options. The follow-up meeting to review results involves the student, parent, partner school personnel and the Career Assessment Specialist. Career skills assessed may include hands-on work samples to determine aptitude for tasks using the fingers, hands and tools, and assessments of clerical, reading, math, measuring and money-handling skills.

. School Resource Officer
In partnership with the Warren County Sheriff's Office, the Warren County Career Center houses a School Resource Officer in our building. The partnership was designed for two reasons: to help young adults understand and interact positively with Law Enforcement on a daily basis, and to help ensure a safe and drug-free environment for education. The School Resource Officer Program was developed through a federal grant as an appropriate and effective response to the issues of school-based juvenile violence and substance abuse. The School Resource Officer, or SRO, has served WCCC very well in establishing relationships that promote education, safety, and positive civic relationships. While the primary role of the School Resource Officer is that of a law enforcement officer charged with keeping order on school grounds, the SRO must also fulfill the roles of counselor, teacher and community liaison. The selection to serve in this challenging and comprehensive role are hand-picked deputies and our SRO was sent to specialized training before starting this assignment. The program is a direct reflection of the Sheriff's steadfast commitment to the health and well-being of our children. Our school resource officer, Warren County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Mark Schulte may be reached at 513-932-5677 ext. 5290, Mark.Schulte@mywccc.org
We work hard to ensure that each student has an individual plan for achievement and receives the support necessary to complete their plans and be successful!
