Willamette Career Academy is seeking applicants for a job posting for the diesel technologies teaching position
Salem, Ore.—Students will have a new source of diesel mechanics training this fall when the new Willamette Career Academy (WCA) opens in a former Toys-R-Us store on Lancaster Drive in Salem.
The program will serve students and business partners from across Marion, Polk, and Yamhill counties, according to a NATA report. The WCA is modeled after Salem-Keizer School District’s Career and Technical Education Center and Clark County Washington’s highly successful Cascadia Technical Academy.
These programs have experienced robust participation and enthusiasm by both students and industry partners alike. The program is a result of the partnership between Mountain West Investment Corporation and the Willamette Education Service District (ESD). The Willamette ESD, representing the region’s 21 school districts, has entered into a memorandum of agreement with Mountain West, and is fully committed to program development and the program’s ongoing operations.
