Frankie Ray Jackson, Sr. Technical Center will open the 2018-19 school year as the Natchitoches Parish Technical and Career Center. According to Principal Bobby Benjamin, the name change has been in the works for years.
“We first introduced the idea of changing the name of our school a few years ago,” he said. “This is the name that was chosen during that time through a survey given to parents, students, and teachers. To us, it represents our purpose in the Natchitoches Parish School System.”
With an annual increase in School Performance Scores (SPS), a graduation ceremony, and an increase in the number of courses offered at the school, NPTCC is here to serve the students of the community.
NPTCC will be open for registration on Aug. 1-6 from 10 am – 3 pm. School administration is asking that parents be patient during this process as students will be asked to take a brief test, which will be used to help increase their potential for academic success. The school will also host its Open House and Ice Cream Social on Sunday, Aug. 12, 2018 from 5 pm to 6:30 pm. For more information call (318)357-9410.
