Toledo Public Schools is set to announce its latest initiative in career technology options for high school students.

District leaders on Wednesday will unveil a plan to open the Aerospace and Natural Science Academy of Toledo in time for the 2018-2019 school year. The new academy is aimed at ninth- through 12th-grade students interested in the fields of aviation, environmental science, sustainability, and wildlife management.

Students currently enrolled at the TPS Aviation Center and Natural Science Technology Center have a split schedule. Part of their day is spent at their home high school, and the remainder is spent at the center, where their specialty classes are offered. The new academy will allow students to take both their core curriculum and specialty classes at the same building.

The academy will be located at Toledo Express Airport in the building that used to house the Flight Safety International pilot training program.

Bowsher High School sophomore Jayla Perryman did such a great job in the We Are TPS Proud video we released a couple of weeks ago (check it out on our YouTube channel if you missed it) that Dr. Durant decided to surprise her with a couple of gifts today. Here's a little video. #tpsproud #discovertps

Participants are being sought for the latest cohort of the Urban Leadership Development Program, a partnership between Toledo Public Schools, Bowling Green State University and The Toledo Association of Administrative Personnel to train current teachers to become building administrators and supervisors.

The 2017-2018 school year is underway but at Toledo Public Schools, we're always happy to have new students join our TPS Proud family.
