Welcome to Our Website!
Students and staff from the ISD 917 Dakota County Area Learning Schools (DCALS) and Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs have been busy the past few months with a wide array of projects and activities. We have been visiting multiple area businesses to explore career options available to all our students. We have been volunteering with food shelters, pet shelters, and personal care centers. Staff have visited and met with representatives from a number of local corporations to better help them prepare students for careers in a wide range of professions. CTE staff have participated in Career Fairs to show what programs we have to offer students while still in high school.
Retreat in the woods--
Camper cabin collaboration teaches students skills
Whitetail Woods cabins - primitive camper cabins that are modern in design and offer an overnight experience free of modern social media --no TV, video game or radio. Although there is access to electricity and Wi-Fi. Perched above rustling, quite pines, the camper cabins were designed to be elevated off the ground. They can accommodate six overnight guests who can kick back and relax indoors nestled under a restful tree canopy to see only the beauty of nature. Constructed by high school students under classes offered through Intermediate School District 917 and Construction Trades Instructor Paul Landwehr. Paul said the entire class built it outdoors in the winter where we worked outside and not in a shop. The camper cabins were then transported to Whitetail Wood Park that would become their new home.
