Why Southeastern?

Vocational education takes a hands-on approach to learning, integrating academic course work with vocational and technical education. This multi-pronged approach to education has proven successful time and time again. Educating today’s youth for tomorrow’s challenges in an environment that teaches through example is what makes us special. Just ask our students.

Most employers of employees who had participated in work-based learning reported that those employees were superior to comparable new employees in terms of productivity and attitude. In short, our students are ready to participate in the workforce or go on to two and four year programs.

Southeastern takes an interest in each and everyone of our students. Using the resources of our great teachers and support staff, we offer educational and support opportunities not available in traditional educational settings. From our modern facilities, to our technologically enabled classrooms, to our vocational shops and athletic programs, Southeastern works!

  1. Promote the rights and responsibilities of all individuals as set forth in the State and Federal Constitutions, pertinent legislation, and applicable judicial interpretations.

The Committee’s policy of nondiscrimination will extend to students, staff, the general public, and individuals with whom it does business.

Under Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, educational institutions are responsible for preventing sexual discrimination against their students and employees.  Sexual harassment is considered to be a form of sex discrimination.  If sexual harassment involves a minor student in a school setting, it can be considered a criminal offense under laws relating to child abuse.
