“A 6-3 vote by the Vancouver School Board Monday night means more high school students will have the training to work in health care.
As it stands, two students per year in the district are able to receive duel credit while they work as senior care aides.
The motion tabled by Trustee Lisa Dominato called for that number to rise.”
“A Vancouver School Board (VSB) trustee has tabled a motion to increase the number of spaces for health care assistants in the district’s dual credit program.
The program has been organized in partnership with Vancouver Community College, and NPA trustee Lisa Dominato said it allows students to gain credits in high school and toward their post-secondary diploma.”
