Vo-Tech Program coming to Linn County Kansas

Prairie View USD 362 is pleased to share in the announcement that the Pleasanton USD 344 school board voted Monday evening to purchase the old Cox Ford Dealership building from the city of Pleasanton for the purpose of vocational education in Linn County.

This building will be used to house several different vocational programs which could include EMT, welding, criminal justice, heavy equipment operation, carpentry, medical coding, heavy equipment operation, HVAC as well as other vocational offerings of student interest. 

These programs will be open to Linn County students as well as other schools outside the county. Fort Scott Community College will be the provider of these programs which will offer FREE tuition to Linn County resident students.

The building will need some renovations to be completed this winter and spring and will open in August of 2022 for student enrollment. Thank you to Pleasanton USD 344 and the city of Pleasanton for offering this opportunity to Prairie View students!!! 

Prairie View USD 362 is highly interested and very excited to support vocational education and training for our students right here in Linn County!
