COLUMBUS - State Senator Andrew Brenner (R-Delaware) has announced more than $2.9 million is coming to the 19th Senate District to support career-technical education programs. The award recipients will use the funds to prepare Ohio's students for future careers. 

"As Ohio's economy continues to grow, we need to equip our students with the best tools and resources to enter the workforce," said Brenner. "Career Tech provides students with the opportunity to begin a career without the burden of student debt." 

Awardees in the 19th Senate District include:

  • Olentangy Schools: $2,333,216.00
  • Delaware Area Career Center: $649,545

These dollars come from the Career Technical Education Equipment Grant Program, which funds the purchase of updated equipment for career-technical programs. 56 schools across Ohio will receive more than $67.7 million from this program to expand their reach to an additional 10,345 students.

The program was allocated money in House Bill 33, the state's main operating budget. The second round of the Career Technical Education Equipment Grant will open later this spring. Schools interested in applying can do so here.
