Many people may be surprised to learn that companies are having a hard time filling jobs. Although we hear about corporate downsizing and job reductions, millions of jobs remain unfilled due to a shortage of properly trained candidates. The gap between the demand for well-trained employees and the supply of skilled workers grows wider every year, say experts at the Association for Career and Technical Education. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 18 of the 20 fastest growing occupations within the next decade will require career and technical education.

One solution to the skill gap problem will be to provide students with greater exposure to programs that prepare them for successful employment. That's just one of the goals of the new Storm Lake, Iowa Central, Buena Vista Charter School. Storm Lake High School students who participate in the Charter School will have access to Iowa Central Community College career programs at no cost for tuition and books.
