INDEPENDENCE — Grayson County will move forward with seeking certification to continue its auto mechanics program through the county’s Career and Technical Education Center (CATE).
CATE Principal Karen Blevins talked with the school board earlier this month requesting approval to seek certification.
Blevins explained that at some point the certification was dropped, primarily due to costs.
At the time, having a certified instructor was sufficient. Legislation changed two years ago, requiring programs to be certified by July 1, 2013.
