Facility Project

Clark County’s growing demand for skilled workforce sparks evaluation of CTC's facilities and capacity.

Since the Springfield Clark Career Technology Center (CTC) was founded in 1967, more than 14,000 students have passed through our doors. CTC, formerly known as the Springfield-Clark County Joint Vocational School (JVS), currently offers high school students from Clark County the choice of 22 programs in healthcare, engineering, IT, and other high-demand career fields. 
Although CTC has undergone a number of updates, renovations, additions, and construction projects since our founding, most of our 7 buildings that house our nearly 700 students are more than 50 years old Student enrollment is currently severely limited by undersized classrooms.  We have had to turn away more than 150 students for the upcoming 2023-24 school year alone. That is why we are embarking on a major overhaul of our outdated facilities.

We have been working with the Ohio Facilities Construction Commission, a state agency that helps finance school building projects. OFCC will finance 62% of the total cost of the CTC facilities project, but to participate, the district will have to raise the rest of the funds locally. CTC will be the state’s first career tech school to partner with the agency.

Facility Planning Process

We conducted a recent online survey of nearly 50 Clark County community leaders to gather input. Survey participants emphasized student safety and security, ADA accessibility, and space flexibility for future programming as being important to consider in facility planning.

Survey participants, as well as 100+ other community leaders, were invited to the Facility Advisory Forum in late April. Over 25 attendees at the Forum collaborated to develop priorities and goals for facility planning, as well as a list of information that would be helpful. The presentation and recap from the April 24 meeting are available to view.
