In March 2017, the Kuna community approved a $40 million bond with over half being earmarked for construction of the career technical education center and general education classrooms. Kuna Joint School District broke ground on the new technical high school March 5, 2020 with it slated to open Fall 2020. Housing up to 450 students, the school will offer healthcare related courses, automotive & diesel technologies, electronics, agriculture & welding which set students up for success as they move on to Secondary Education within these fields.
Having hands on experience in these fields opens doors & increases an individuals resume as they enter the industry; Governor Little has even recommended $6 million in his budget for career technical education facilities at the College of Eastern Idaho, Lewis-Clark State College & the Department of Juvenile Corrections. Per an Idaho News 6 Article written by Jessica Taylor titled Swan Falls High School Leads Students to Career Opportunites, "Statewide, high school students concentrating on CTE programs perform well; 96% graduate from high school & 64% went on to college, compared to 48% of all Idaho high school graduates."
