Southeastern Regional Vocational Technical High School is among agencies sharing in $658,000 worth of state workforce training grants, the Patrick-Murray administration announced Friday.
The $70,150 Massachusetts Clean Energy Center Workforce Capacity Building and Youth Pathways initiative grant will allow the South Easton-based school to "update and enhance faculty curriculum that incorporates clean energy technologies such as solar thermal, weatherization and HERS rating systems," the lieutenant governor's office said in a press release.
"After curriculum is enhanced, faculty will prepare and train Southeastern students in clean energy career areas and develop and implement a weatherization course for secondary and post-secondary students," the release states.
The state grant program supports efforts building "the instructional capacity of staff, faculty and instructors and expose students to clean energy concepts at higher education institutions, secondary and vocational technical high schools, and community-based/non-profit organizations," the release states.
"This initiative will also provide an opportunity for organizations to work directly with clean energy companies and provide work experience to low-income high school students and disconnected youth between the ages of 16 and 24."
Southeastern serves Brockton, East Bridgewater, Easton, Foxborough, Mansfield, Norton, Sharon, Stoughton and West Bridgewater.
