Central High will be introducing more business classes in the Fall of 2021. The course is offered to all students and will be taught in a three part program. Sign-ups for these business classes are already available and students can contact their guidance counselor if they are interested. In these classes, students will learn how to start, manage, and grow a business while also preparing themselves for the future.
Also, students will be able to participate in competitions such as SkillsUSA and FBLA. SkillsUSA is a competition where schools all across the country come together to compete in various STEM, design, and technical competitions. FBLA is the Future Business Leaders of America, and it helps get students more involved in the business world, while also educating them on business topics.
The business classes that will be offered, will have lasting effects on the students that excel. Long lasting experiences and knowledge will prepare young students for entrepreneurship. A number of career opportunities will open up, as the door into the business world will be opened. Students will demonstrate an understanding of the historical, current, and future significance of supply chain industries. Also, many will be able to plan for the effective and efficient flow of goods and services.
These classes are a perfect opportunity to expose many to different career pathways in business. The course will show how businesses are created, maintained, and grown over time. There are many things to be considered when starting a business, such as the planning, management, and movement of people, materials, and products by road, air, rail, pipeline, and water.
The knowledge and skills that students will gain in this course will serve as the foundation in the Supply Chain Management program of study. The course will be split up into three parts, with the first being the “Foundations of Supply Chain Management”. Mr. Cuttle is optimistic, and is excited to begin instructing the course. Classes begin in Fall 2021 and will last as a year round class.
