A total of 126 students have signed up for the new Skill Up Indiana! program at Eastside Junior-Senior High School.

At its meeting Monday, the DeKalb Eastern school board approved a contract for Derek Young as an instructor for Skill Up, which starts this fall.

At the junior high level, 44 students enrolled in an industrial arts course titled Introduction to Basic Woods and Metals. High school enrollments include 40 students in Introduction to Construction Systems and 42 students in Introduction to Advanced Manufacturing.

The Indiana Department of Workforce Development supports Skill Up Indiana! to “align education and training programs to high-demand, high-wage career opportunities.” The department awarded Eastside $251,000 to launch Skill Up, and the local Dekko Foundation pledged up to $150,000.
