Changes to courses at Lebanon High School made by the Indiana Department of Education have several administrators frustrated, LHS Principal Kevin O’Rourke shared at Tuesday’s school board meeting.
Most of the changes made are in the elective and vocational areas, O’Rourke said, including LHS’ very popular health careers program.
“This is such a tremendous program, and the state really overhauled it and tied our hands,” O’Rourke said. “We have to find a way to keep this program. It’s one of our most valuable.”
Changes include eliminating health careers 1 and 2 and replacing them with introduction to health care systems and medical terminology.
“This is one of our hallmark programs, and it just doesn’t make a lot of sense,” O’Rourke continued. “We’re going to work through it.”
