New School For Immokalee

Immokalee Career Center Groundbreaking

IMMOKALEE, FL. -- November 6th promises to be a very special day in the Immokalee community.  It will be an exciting day for the School District of Collier County as well.

There's a ground breaking ceremony planned for 10 am on Tuesday, November 6th, for the soon-to-be named Immokalee Career Center.  It'll be built at 508 N. 9th Street in Immokalee, on the former site of The Learning Center.  The new career center is expected to open in January of 2009.  It'll be a post-secondary, adult education technical center which will be also used by Immokalee High School students who are dual-enrolled in career education programs.

A name for the new center is in the process of being chosen.  Input is being gathered, and a school naming meeting was held this week at the Bethune Education Center Auditorium in Immokalee.  The School Board will vote on a name in December.

To learn more about the new center or the school naming meeting, please contact Principal Dorin Oxender at 658-7063, or at oxendedo@collier.k12.fl.us.  To learn about the ground breaking, contact the District Communication & Information Office by phone at 377-0180, or at info@collier.k12.fl.us.
