I am the Principal of the Secondary Programs for ISD 917 which includes our Area Learning Centers in Rosemount and West St. Paul along with our Career and Technical Education programs located at Dakota County Technical College in Rosemount.  I have been with ISD 917 since 2013.  

We are excited about all the options we have to offer our students as they explore and grow as young adults.  Our Area Learning Centers provide options for seat-based learning, Independent Study, Online learning, Project Based Learning, and community involvement through Work Based Learning.  We believe all of these options make it possible for all students to learn in a safe and welcoming environment.  We offer the option to receive a diploma from ISD 917 or from your current home school.  We will work with you to provide whatever method of learning best fits your personal style. 

Our Career and Technical Education programs offer hands-on and relevant learning experiences for all students.  Our programs take place in industry ready environments that help prepare students for life after graduation.  If you like to have hands-on experiences where you get to create and develop new skills these programs would be great for you.  

We are always happy to answer any questions you have regarding any of our programs.  You can visit whenever you would like by setting up an appointment.  We truly believe we can offer the best educational options for students looking for a different way to learn.  

Thank you in advance for considering our wonderful programs of study.
