As part of its renovations, South Heart Public School received a new vocational agriculture building last year.
Since then, it has provided the school the space and technology to expand its vocational programs. That's kind of what the career and tech education is pushing for, is kids can come out of high school with the skills necessary to jump right woan either a tech school or the workforce.

RACTC rotates equipment among 11 schools in the area. Before, it was a Neef to store the equipment they already had. What wouldn't fit in closet space or against the wall was taken to the bus barn, said Swann.
In addition to the added space, students now have safety features they didn't have in the old room. The new building has an eyewash and shower, and both the welding area and painting and staining room have ventilation. In the welding area, students have adjustable snorkels they can move close to their welding piece to suck out the fumes.
Previously, the only choices they had for fresh air was to open a door or to go outside, said Swann. The shop areas have other conveniences, too.
Electrical outlets hang from the ceiling on pulleys around the room, so students have access to power wherever they are in the shop. There are air hookups throughout the room as well that students can use to dust off their clothing before they leave for class.

Jung said he believes the vo ag building was a selling point to the community on the school's renovations. For many of South Heart's students, the work they do in vo ag is directly applicable to their lives.
