DeSoto Parish School System and the Northwest Louisiana Technical College Compact...

With an intent to provide better occupational training, the DeSoto Parish School System and the Northwest Louisiana Technical College (NWLTC) have signed a compact to improve delivery of career content. The Memorandum of Understanding, reached by both agencies, will provide expanded and streamlined technical education opportunities to students. Under the agreement, in-demand career tracts will be made available, career course credit will be earned while in high school, time will be reduced in the awarding of degrees, and the financial burdens will be lessened on students and families.

“We must be deliberate in preparing students for careers in high-need areas and I’m thankful the educators at NWLTC are partnering with our team to make this happen,” said Dr. Cade Brumley, DeSoto Parish Superintendent of Schools. “We want our students to gain career credentials where they can live a fulfilled life, take care of a family, positively contribute to our American society, and add skilled value to the workforce.”

The shared focus areas for the upcoming year are Business Careers, Electrical Occupations, Healthcare Professions, and Welding. Soon, the collaboration will also include Energy Services, where students will receive training in Oil and Gas Production as well as Safety. The courses offered are intended to provide a launch for students into high-wage, high-demand, and high-skills careers for those enrolled. With high school and NWLTC teachers working together, high-school students will earn industry-based credentials preparing them for jobs. Additionally, the courses and certifications will transfer into full NWLTC degree plans.

“This will be a very productive dual enrollment partnership agreement,” said NWLTC Interim Director Dianne Clark. “I’m excited about our two systems working together to provide the highest quality education for our high-school students.”

Local business and energy should also benefit from this process. Young adults will be better suited to enter the workforce upon graduation from high school with a Career and Technical Studies Certificate from NWLTC. Students desiring to continue their studies and NWLTC for additional specialized certification will finish is much less time than traditional students.

"The North Louisiana Economic Partnership is pleased to see this meaningful collaboration between the DeSoto Parish School Board and Northwest Louisiana Technical College,” said NLEP President Scott Martinez. “This partnership is yet another example of the responsiveness of education partners in North Louisiana in addressing the workforce needs of regional employers and in the process providing our residents with highly marketable skills."

For more information on getting involved, please contact Haley Holder (NWLTC) at 318.872.2243 or Darrell Hampton (DPSB) at 318.872.1198. Students and parents can also contact their high school counselors or campus-based career education teachers for additional details.

“Our Career and Technical Educators are doing good work and this collaboration will strengthen the possibilities for our students as they exit our school system and enter adulthood,” said Dr. Brumley. “I look forward to working even more closely with NWLTC to meet student needs for 21st Century careers in vocational and technical occupations.”

The DeSoto Parish School Board and the Northwest Louisiana Technical College have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to improve and expand occupational training for high school students. Mrs. Dianne Clark (Interim Director of NWLTC) and Dr. Cade Brumley (Superintendent of DeSoto Parish Schools) are shown signing the agreement. Pictured behind from left to right, and vital to the agreement, are Haley Holder (NWLTC Coordinator), Amy Johnson (NWLTC Coordinator), and Dr. Darrell Hampton (Director of Student Services for DeSoto Parish Schools).
