Bristol-Plymouth Regional Technical High School Receives $500,000 Skills Capital Grant

TAUNTON — Superintendent-Director Dr. Alexandre Magalhaes is pleased to announce that Bristol-Plymouth Regional Technical High School has been awarded a $500,000 Skills Capital Grant, courtesy of the Healey-Driscoll administration. 

 

On Monday, June 10, nearly $15 million in Skills Capital Grants were awarded to schools across the state to support them in upgrading technology and instructional lab spaces, expanding career programs for young people and adults, and increasing capacity in workforce training programs across Massachusetts.

 

The $500,000 in funding will be used for the school's dental program. 

 

The Skills Capital Grants are awarded by the state’s Workforce Skills Cabinet, which aligns education, economic development, and workforce policies to meet employers’ demand for skilled workers in every region of Massachusetts. The competitive grants are awarded to educational institutions demonstrating partnerships with local businesses and aligning curriculum and credentials with industry demand to maximize hiring opportunities.

 

“This grant will be utilized to ensure that we are setting up our students at Bristol-Plymouth for success and that we can continue to provide programming that allows our students to learn skills essential for their industries,” said Superintendent Magalhaes. “Thank you to the Workforce Skills Cabinet for providing B-P Tech with this incredible opportunity.”
