Welcome to the South and West Washtenaw Consortium
SWWC Competes at Michigan SkillsUSA Contest
Last weekend, the South and West Washtenaw Consortium sent students from our Automotive Technology, Computer Aided Drafting, Computer Aided Manufacturing, Cosmetology, Culinary Arts, Graphic Communications, Photography, and Welding classes to compete at the Michigan SkillsUSA contest. It was held in Grand Rapids April 5-7, with competing taking place Friday and Saturday and the awards ceremony on Sunday morning. It is a very competitive environment with extremely talented kids in each field. All who made it to this level to compete should consider it quite an accomplishment. Students spent the weekend working hard and making us proud! State winners go to the National Competition, the SkillsUSA Championships, in Louisville, Kentucky in June.

Our Mission Statement
We, the member districts as the South and West Washtenaw Consortium, shall best educate students together in areas where individual districts cannot do as well alone. The Career and Technical Education component of the South and West Washtenaw Consortium empowers its students to be productive members of a changing technological world. The students are provided with the knowledge necessary to achieve the requisite skills, positive attitudes, and work habits to meet those goals.
It is the policy of the South and West Washtenaw Consortium not to discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, gender, age, disability, height, weight, religion, language, or marital status in its programs, activities, or employment.
