Camden County Technical Schools (CCTS)
Recognized Nationally for
Promising Practices in Character Education in 2014

The Character Education Partnership (CEP) has announced that it will award 315 Promising Practices to schools, districts, and youth-serving organizations from across the United States as well as from Canada, China, Greece, and Mexico.

“These great ideas offer educators and others working with young people practical ways to develop empathy, conflict resolution skills, and good citizenship. Quite often, these practices involve not only students, but parents and the larger community,” said Dr. Dave Keller, Program Director. “CEP is excited to be able to recognize these wonderful educators and share their work with others around the world.”

This year’s winning practices include unique anti-bullying programs, creative ways to integrate character and academic subjects, effective strategies for developing student leadership, and activities that build community – within the school and beyond. The Camden County Technical School District was notified on May 30, 2014 that their Gloucester Township and their Pennsauken campuses will each be receiving awards for their Promising Practices. The Gloucester Township Campus will be recognized for their Harassment, Intimidation and Bullying (HIB) Musical Assembly as well as for their Week of Respect, and the Pennsauken Campus will be awarded for their Martial Arts Character Program.

CEP sponsors the annual program to showcase innovative best practices that are having an impact across the nation and abroad. CEP encourages educators with similar needs to learn from and even replicate these successful initiatives. “In addition to preparing our students for careers and college, through their character education programs, our schools also consistently reinforce what employers look for when hiring employees--a positive attitude and a strong work ethic. They are truly deserving of this national recognition,” CCTS Superintendent Patricia Fitzgerald proudly commented.

Harassment, Intimidation & Bullying

2014 - School Self-Assessment

While completing the New Jersey Department of Education School Self-Assessment for Determining Grades under the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights, we learned that our school district has demonstrated strengths in most of the core elements, such as HIB training, personnel, programs and approaches, investigative procedures, and reporting. Any areas that scored less than perfect have been addressed, with changes made to our policies and procedures, to strengthen our commitment in providing a safe, secure, and caring environment at Camden County Technical Schools.

Penn Tech Earns Bronze Medal
From US News and World Report

The Pennsauken Campus of the Camden County Technical School District has been acknowledged nationally for its high level of student achievement and its commitment to educating students.

Out of 389 high schools in New Jersey, the Camden County Technical Schools’ Pennsauken Campus was one of 74 to receive recognition from US News and World Report. A bronze medal was awarded to the high school in the magazine’s nationwide ranking of test scores, college readiness and student to teacher ratio. This is the third time the school has been recognized by the national publication.

“It comes as no surprise that this school has been honored on a national level,” said Freeholder Ian Leonard, liaison to the Camden County Technical School District. “We are very proud of our dedicated employees and the accomplishments of our outstanding students that make this a great school.”

From a vocational school that opened with 400 students in 12 trade areas in 1928, the Camden County Technical School District has grown to be one of the largest and most comprehensive technical high schools in the nation. The Pennsauken Campus is located on Browning Road in Pennsauken, New Jersey. At the Pennsauken Campus, there are more than 800 students enrolled in 15 different career areas.

All students are offered a full-range of athletics and activities to complement their education as well as the opportunity to earn college credits while still in high school. Seniors are offered the opportunity to participate in several school-to-career and cooperative education programs. Graduates of Camden County Technical Schools may continue their education at the post-secondary level or obtain employment in the field for which they were trained through the job placement office.

FIRST Robotics Team Promotes STEM Education at Clementon Elementary School  

CCTS' FIRST Robotics team participated in the Clementon Elementary School Family Fun Day on Saturday, June 7 to promote Robotics and Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) education to elementary and middle school students and families.  High School Students from CCTS explained about the robotics program, the STEM career programs at CCTS, and how they have been learning about STEM through their own career programs and the FIRST robotics program.  Students showed the children and families the components of their robot, how to drive it, how they met the challenges of the game, and more.  Children were given the opportunity to drive the 120lb, 5ft tall “Rocky” the Robot as well as a VEX mini robot from the Pre-Engineering Academy.
 
“It was great to come back to the elementary school I graduated from and talk about STEM and all of the great experiences I have had at Camden County Tech and the FIRST Robotics Program,” said CCTS Pre-Engineering Academy Senior and FIRST Robotics Team Captain Matthew Koch.  “It was nice to see some of my former teachers and tell them about my time since I graduated and how I will be attending The College of New Jersey on a full scholarship for Mechanical Engineering in the Fall!”
 
Andrew McAlpin, CCTS Instructor and FIRST Team Co-Advisor talked about how great it is to get out into the community and promote STEM and FIRST Robotics, “One of the missions of the FIRST organization internationally is to promote the value and need of STEM education in our schools.”   He continued, “FIRST is all about creating an opportunity for our future generation to see what it is like to solve real engineering problems through both the rigors and fun of the robotics competition.  Getting children excited and interested in Science and Math early is the key to meeting the need for future engineers and related STEM careers.”
 
The CCTS FIRST robotics team is working to further spread the word of STEM education and Robotics at similar events and activities throughout the year.
