LONGMONT — The National Science Foundation recently awarded Front Range Community College and the St. Vrain Valley School District $494,175 to launch a Pathways in Technology Early College High School (P-TECH) program in cybersecurity.
The program, which is free, will allow students to earn an associate degree alongside their high school diploma, according to a joint FRCC and SVVSD news release.
For commercial property owners with triple net leases (NNN), recouping the costs of a capital energy improvement can be a barrier to making sustainable investments. See two ways to overcome the split incentive with solar as well as four financial incentives that benefit commercial property owners directly.
Cybersecurity is critical to almost every industry,” FRCC president Andy Dorsey said in a prepared statement. “That’s why jobs in this arena are plentiful in Colorado — and they pay well. When our P-TECH students complete the FRCC cybersecurity program, they’ll be highly qualified to get good jobs right out of high school.”
The Cybersecurity P-TECH program will be housed at Silver Creek High School, and student recruitment will begin this fall, the release said. The first-year cohort of 30 to 35 students will be enrolling in fall 2021; a second-year cohort of similar size will enroll the following fall, with future cohorts increasing to 50 to 60 students per cohort, the release said.
