We are excited to announce that Kellogg High School is partnering with the Idaho PTECH Network.
The Idaho PTECH Network is a partnership between industry, high schools and community colleges that prepares students for careers in Idaho’s high growth industries, including aerospace/ advanced manufacturing, technology and healthcare. As a PTECH school, we are proud to have several students going through the first year of the program.
PTECH students work directly with a PTECH Coach who guides students through careful selection of high school courses, online college courses taken while in high school, community college degree and certificate programs, and job shadows or internships. And the best part is, students earn associates degrees or industry-approved credentials at community colleges at no cost to them or their parents. Even the use of textbooks and a laptop are free!
The program is funded by the J.A. and Kathryn Albertson Foundation and is currently in its beta year with more than 150 juniors and seniors from six participating Idaho high schools.
For more information or to get involved, please contact Molly Huckaby, Direct of School Services at (208) 290- 8399 (firstname.lastname@example.org) or visit www.IdahoPTECH.org.

Through our new website you can search for library materials at home on your home computer, laptop or smartphone. Our automated card catalog is located on all KHS Media Center computer stations, and is readily available by opening the Google Chrome feature. Because the website and catalog all work from the same source, looking for materials and status is as easy as can be.
