Fees and Recommended Tools

Your student is enrolled in a program where a tool kit is not necessary for him/her to purchase at this time. Required program fees may include safety glasses, tool rental, workbook, technology fees and dues for our professional organization.  Students will be assigned a tool kit (which will remain the property of the school) to use during their junior year.  The tool kit will be kept in the lab and will not be permitted outside of the school.  This procedure delays the cost of a tool kit purchase by you until the student completes the program.  Students will be responsible for lost, stolen or damaged kit items.  A chrome book fee is also required as part of the program fees.

Students will be responsible for providing leather-upper hard-soled shop shoes.  Rocky Boots in Nelsonville has agreed to assist us with providing appropriate work boots at a reduced price to our students.  More information about the boot purchase will be provided to students after school begins.  A two-day supply of work shirts (dark blue – Dickies, Workwear, etc.) is also recommended.
