New career and technical education building ready for first semester.
The Technology, Exploration and Career Center West (TECC-W) campus is officially open for the new school year and will soon have students walking the halls.
Lewisville ISD (LISD) voters passed a bond referendum in 2017, with nearly 63 percent of voters in favor of the bond. Included in the bond package was a new career center on the west side of Interstate 35 — intended to replace an aging Dale Jackson Career Center (DJCC).
In his 2020-21 welcome message, Director of TECC-W Justin Gilbreath expressed excitement for the new building and start of the school year.
“We would like to thank all those in our community that have made this vision a reality by supporting the LISD Bond,” Gilbreath said. “At TECC-West, students will have many new opportunities to earn certifications in their areas of interest while engaging in authentic learning experiences that include real-world applications using state-of-the-art industry equipment.”
Programs offered at TECC-W include agriculture mechanics, animal science, auto collision, audio-video production and digital sports media, cosmetology, culinary arts, cyber security and IT, electrical, floral design, forensic science, health science, HVAC, horticulture and plant science, hospitality and event planning, medical assisting, veterinary technician, welding and wood manufacturing.
LISD schools began the school year with students learning remotely, but will welcome in-person learners to the campuses, including TECC-W, Sept. 8.
