  Beginning next school year, MPACT will partner with Alabama Power in offering a utility line worker program.

The pilot program at Montgomery Preparatory Academy for Career Technologies will be the first such program offered at a K-12 school system in Alabama.

"It came about through our continued partnership with Alabama Power and MPS," MPACT principal Marsha Baugh said Wednesday. "They looked at the needs of their company and knew that they needed skilled workers coming out of school. And we saw an opportunity to partner with the school system and Alabama Power so that we could have a program for students where they could take courses here, and as they come out of school, they would have the qualifications and the skills needed to go to work for Alabama Power. It was a benefit to both education as well as to the company itself."

The program will not only be based on demand, or the interest from the students, but safety will also be considered in determining the number of students who could enter the program.
