Original Mission Statement

The original school’s mission statement was “The doors shall be open to anyone who sincerely wants, needs, and/or can profit from vocational or technical instruction. So that our people will have the opportunity to become equipped with saleable skills, become gainfully employed, make a positive contribution to society, and lead more useful and satisfying lives.” That was later modified to our current mission statement you read above.

The original school districts participating were Batesville, Milan, South Ripley, Sunman, Switzerland, Otter Creek Township, Ohio County, Caesar Creek Township, Clay Township, Jennings County, Sparta Township, and Jac-Cen-Del. It has since changed to the twelve we currently support and educate.
