FCCC school year opens this week

Opening day for Four County Career Center juniors and new students is Wednesday, Aug. 18, and Thursday, Aug. 19, for returning seniors.

The 2021-22 school year is opening its doors to over 950 new and returning students.

Upon completing their training, students receive a Career Passport containing a certificate documenting their training along with verification of employability skills. If they meet the graduation requirements of their high school, they also receive a diploma from their associate high school.

Students attend FCCC classes starting at 8:45 a.m. and ending at 3 p.m. All classes will be held in-person in the labs and classrooms following the state requirements for health and safety measures. FCCC follows a closed lunch period policy requiring all students to either purchase a lunch in the cafeteria or carry their own. Lunches conform to federal governmental standards for a nutritious student lunch.

All FCCC associate districts provide bus transportation for enrolled students. Students are urged to use the transportation provided by their local district. For students who must drive cars to school, a parking area is provided at the northwest side of the school building.

School closing and delays will be broadcast over the Archbold, Bryan, Defiance, and Napoleon radio stations, as well as WTVG-13 TV, WTOL-11 TV, WNWO-24 TV, and FOX-36 TV in Toledo.
