CareerTech financial services staff connect during training

Ada — Thirty Oklahoma technology center financial services staff members recently learned more about the Oklahoma CareerTech System and the issues that confront their offices in TechCENT$.

Jerri Howard with the Pontotoc Technology Center was one of the graduates.

The professional development program, in its first year, is designed to teach participants the requirements for managing school finances in legal, ethical and responsible ways, said Diane Durham, TechCENT$ program coordinator with the Oklahoma Department of Career and Technology Education.

Participants shared their best practices with each other, she said, and had “the opportunity to experience the unique instruction and services provided by the different tech centers they visited.”

The 30 participants attended five sessions from October through March and visited six technology centers and ODCTE’s offices in Stillwater. 

Topics ranged from the history and future of the CareerTech System to budgeting, funding and personnel issues.

“In addition to the program curriculum, participants developed contacts and established relationships with other technology center staff that will provide them with resources long after the conclusion of the program,” Durham said.

Participants in TechCENT$ are required to work for a technology center or ODCTE and be current or potential technology center financial services staff members.
