Happy CTE Month!
Did you know that by becoming a CTE concentrator you can meet graduation requirements for bucket 3, postsecondary readiness competencies? In order to meet requirements with CTE, a student must take all required classes in the pathway and earn a C average in each course.
We look forward to growing our program offerings in the coming school years and increasing Work-Based Learning, Postsecondary Certifications, and Dual-Credit opportunities for all of our students!

Staff Spotlight - Ms. Glavas
My name is Georgianne Glavas and I teach Pharmacy Tech here at Central. This is my 26th year with the district. I graduated from Indiana University – Bloomington with a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology and earned my Master of Education from Indiana Wesleyan University. Eight years ago, when I moved from the middle school to the high school to teach health, teachers were asked about what classes we thought should be taught here at Central; I immediately thought Pharmacy Tech would complement our CNA and EMT programs. Since I am a state licensed and nationally certified pharmacy technician, I was able to develop the program from the ground up.
Pharmacy Tech is a great class to get students college and/or career ready. Students learn the skills necessary to work as a Licensed/Certified Pharmacy Technician, which includes a working understanding of name brand/generic drugs and their uses, entering prescriptions, and updating patient profiles. Skills acquired will include pharmacy calculations for medication dispensing, parameters of patient confidentiality, and providing customer service. They get first-hand experience to apply all their knowledge in a real pharmacy. In addition to having students become licensed and nationally certified pharmacy technicians, I’ve a few even go on to Pharmacy School to become pharmacists. If you or someone you know is interested in taking my pharmacy class, please stop by room or send me an email at email@example.com.
