BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY ACADEMY, 2012

The Woodridge Foundation implemented the Biomedical Engineering and Technology Academy (BETA) during the 2012/13 school year. Classroom upgrades and new equipment were purchased by the Foundation to guarantee the success of this new class offering. This program is made available to all students in the six district compact (Cuyahoga Falls, Hudson, Kent Roosevelt, Stow, Tallmadge, Woodridge) meeting the required prerequisites. This emerging science focuses on applying the principles of engineering and technology to life sciences. The format of the Tech Prep Initiative is discovery-based, with an emphasis on current technology, developments and research. Students will focus on modern field usage of biotechnology in engineering, pharmaceuticals, medicine, agriculture and others. It is a two-year program with the opportunity to earn college credit through the University of Akron.

THE FIELD HOUSE PROJECT, 2010

We completed the new field house and stadium restroom in time for the start of the 2010/11 school year. The field house project addressed 100% of our students through our health and physical education programs. In addition, it provided a hub for strength training, conditioning, meeting space, changing areas, basic athletic medical treatment and storage for the 71% of our student body who are involved with athletics. The new field house and training facility was our largest endeavor to date.
