School superintendent Patrick Mayer and University of Alaska Southeast tech prep coordinator Kimberly Szczatko unveil her new office Monday at Wrangell High School. The move was part of a deal to improve access to the joint program, which allows high school students to earn college credits and other certifications.

The next steps have been taken on an agreement between the University of Alaska Southeast and Wrangell Public School District, with the establishment of an office for the university's technical preparation program.

The tech prep program is offered for college credit through the university, and courses are taught by approved instructors using UAS syllabi. Enrolled students earn high school credits needed for graduation as well, and school superintendent Patrick Mayer explained the program will allow them the opportunity to explore any of 79 different career pathways over four years.
