Plainfield High and Moosup Elementary Schools are pleased to announce our new partnership with Westminster Tool, LLC. The goal of this partnership is to promote awareness and education of local advanced manufacturing career opportunities for our students. By working with Westminster Tool and other local industries, Plainfield Public Schools can increase student awareness of manufacturing careers, establish pathways to college, and develop a skilled workforce for the high-tech manufacturing careers of today and tomorrow. Establishing a groundbreaking K-12 career pathway starting with inquiry-based Makerspace labs at the elementary level to increase student interest in science, technology, engineering, and math at an early age is planned for the 2017/2018 school year. High School students will have the opportunity to take manufacturing coursework and earn free college credit during the school day, providing them with valuable job skills, and a head start on their college career. By partnering with local industries, Plainfield students will receive real world experience in interesting manufacturing careers, and obtain the high-tech employable skills needed for a rewarding career in the manufacturing field.
Plainfield High School has been designated by Westminster Tool as the recipient of the AMBA Tooling Trailblazer of the Year Award.
