The CIS program at Greenville High School was asked to represent the school at the Ohio School Board Association Conference November 11-14. To honor this selection the Southwest Region will be recognizing the district with a framed certificate at their Annual Fall Meeting on October 11 at the Warren County Career Center. This will be the second year for them to attend this conference. They will be presenting information on the employment experiences offered them through the CIS class. The Greenville City Schools has been hiring students from the CIS class between their junior and senior years to work over the summer with the network administrators to help get the district’s computers ready for the school year. The hired students were able to participate in a Progress Book training session so they were able to work with the returning teachers as the district changed to a different online grade book program. The students continue to work after the school day on an as-needed basis. This program provides an excellent opportunity to gain valuable work experience. Several of last year’s graduates have already secured positions in computer related fields at GTI and Crown Equipment while continuing their related education at Sinclair Community College.
The CIS program is a two-year program offered to juniors and seniors. It is taught using Cisco’s online curriculum which prepares students for the Cisco CCNA certification exam, the industry standard in computer networking. CIS also covers IT Essentials which prepares students for CompTIA’s A+ certification exam, which is the industry standard in computer repair/help desk.
