VBTC Students Qualify for the BPA Leadership Conference
On Tuesday, January 9, thirty-three students from the Van Buren Technology Center attended the Business Professionals of America Leadership Conference at Lake Michigan College in Benton Harbor, Michigan.
R/Vets is a group whose main objective is to support our Veterans at the Battle Creek VA Medical Center.
Jacob Brink, a student at Bangor High School and Van Buren Technology Center, uses Networking Academy classes to help him prepare for college.
Jacob Brink loves technology. The 17-year-old high school senior takes as many tech classes as he can at Van Buren Technology Center, located in Lawrence Michigan, including several Cisco Networking Academy classes. "I love to tear things apart and put them back together," Jacob says.

Survey for Parents, Grandparents, and Caregivers
Parents and other caregivers of children from preschool through grade 12 are invited to provide feedback on Michigan’s new, online “transparency dashboard” designed to show the performance of every public school in Michigan, including public school academies. The dashboard is currently under development by the Michigan Department of Education (MDE). It is expected to be made available to the public by early 2018.
The new dashboard will report on more than 20 different factors—or measures—that parents and other stakeholders have said are important to them when evaluating the quality of a school. The survey allows participants to view components of the new dashboard, then answer questions about the way information is presented, the usefulness of certain features, and viewers’ unique interests. The Michigan Department of Education will use survey feedback to help shape the current and future versions of the dashboard so that it is helpful to parents in every community.
