Facility Project

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 23 programs in healthcare, engineering, IT, and other high-demand career fields. 
Student enrollment is severely limited by undersized classrooms.  CTC has turned away more than 150 students for the current 2023-24 school year alone and nearly 1,000 over the past 10 years. That is why we are embarking on a major overhaul of our outdated facilities.
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 800 students are more than 50 years old

Why does CTC need a new building?

While CTC’s buildings meet the requirements of the time they were built, by today’s standards they are outdated and undersized, severely limiting the number of students CTC can accept.

As part of its process, OFCC conducted a robust analysis of CTC facilities. The agency found a number of issues that need to be addressed. 

The agency determined the cost to renovate the building exceeded two-thirds of the cost of a new building and recommended building a new facility.

What will the project cost?

The total project is estimated to cost $90 million.

The new facility would be built on the existing property - CTC owns over 100 acres. No additional funds will be needed to purchase land.


How will it be paid for?

The building would be paid for through a combination of state and local dollars. 

CTC has been approved to receive $38.7 million in funding from the state through the Ohio Facilities Construction Commission.

The remaining $51.3 million would be raised locally through a 1.4 mill tax levy.

What will the cost be to property owners?

How much will it cost me?

The cost per property owner is based on the Clark County Auditor's appraised value. Appraised value is NOT the same as market value.
