Director's Message

Dear CBTECH Parents,

First, thank you for sharing your student with CBTECH. We are excited for another successful school year and all the things that we have planned for the programs!

Our motto is, “On time, every day with a positive attitude.” We feel that if we can help the students to understand how to be a good employee, it will also open doors for them for future employment. We are asking for you to partner with their instructor in making attendance of utmost importance. If your student is absent please call the attendance line at CBTECH, 793-7006 so that we may clear the absence. The line is open 24 hours a day, and you have 48 hours to clear an absence after your student returns to class. If you go over the 48 hours, please call so that we can make a notation in our records that you were aware of the absence.

School safety is a primary concern to all of us at CBTECH. Any school harassment or bullying is not acceptable. If you have any questions, please call CBTECH and ask for either Mrs. Armstrong or Mr. Utter. We will return your call. If you choose to be anonymous, there is a link to the SafeSchools Helpline on the bottom right of the district website homepage.

Every CBTECH students also earn 5 college credits for First Aid Training from BBCC.

We have scheduled an Open House for parents on Thursday, October 24th, 5:00-7:00. Please join us in seeing what your student is learning this year. We would like to meet every parent, grandparent, and sibling if possible.



Christine Armstrong
CBTECH Director
