The New Ulm Public Schools received a $100,000 grant from the Economic Development Authority (EDA) to establish a Career Technical Education (CTE) Center. The Career Technical Education Center will provide students and adults with education in the areas of manufacturing, machining, construction, automotive repair, small gas engines and auto body repair. Construction education would include training for plumbing, electricians and carpentry work. The center will provide hands-on learning and provide opportunities for adults who may be considering a career change. New Ulm Public schools have established partnerships with local industry and businesses and other partners to develop plans, garner ideas and pool resources. The $100,000 grant will assist with purchasing additional equipment and materials to run the Career Technical Education Center.
