Commonwealth Awards Keefe Tech $397,000 For New Dental Assisting Program, Equipment

by Press Release
March 9, 2017

The Baker-Polito Administration this week awarded $11.8 million in Workforce Skills Capital Grants to 32 vocational schools, community colleges, and traditional public high schools, which will use the funds to purchase vocational technical equipment and expand skills training programs for careers in growing industries. Twenty institutions are first-time recipients of the Workforce Skills Capital Grants.

One of the recipients was the South Regional Technical School District. Keefe Technical High School will receive $397,150.

Keefe Tech will use the grant to roll out a new dental assisting program, including purchasing dental chairs, panoramic X-ray technology, including development capability, sterilizers and autoclaves.

“These investments have a major impact for the educational institutions training our workforce and the students who stand to benefit from enhanced skills and career paths,” said Governor Charlie Baker, in announcing the award in Lowell.

“Strengthening relationships between educational institutions and local industry as this program seeks to do is crucial to the success of our communities and Commonwealth as a whole,” said the Governor.

The Workforce Skills Capital Grants program was created by the Baker-Polito Administration last year to assist educational institutions in demonstrating partnerships with industry and aligning curriculum and credentials with local businesses’ demand, maximizing planning objectives and hiring or internship opportunities regionally.

 

To date, the Baker-Polito Administration has awarded more than $24 million in Workforce Skills Capital Grants to 63 different institutions, improving programs that impact more than 7,100 students per year.

The economic development bill signed by Governor Baker last year includes $45 million for the awards over the next three years to increase the capacity and quality of vocational educational programs.
