Central Nine Vocational/Technical School

Central Nine Career Center provides career and technical education to prepare students for employment in a chosen career and/or education opportunities at a post-education secondary institution.


Project Lead The Way

Project Lead The Way is all about teaching and learning. The hands-on, project and problem-based PLTW approach adds rigor to traditional technical programs and relevance to traditional academics. PLTW’s curriculum makes math and science relevant for students. By engaging in hands-on, real-world projects, students understand how the skills they are learning in the classroom can be applied in everyday life. This approach is called activities-based learning, project-based learning, and problem-based learning or APPB-learning.


National institute for excellence in teaching

Perry Township Schools’ teachers professional development is support by our partnership with the National Institute for Excellence in Teaching. Since 2010, our district has partnered with NIET to raise student achievement by putting teacher leaders at the forefront of school improvement. Teachers participate in weekly meetings called “cluster,” where they use the NIET rubric to identify student needs, learn new strategies, develop lesson plans, apply lessons, and evaluate student work. Our partnership with NIET helps make Perry Township a leader in educator effectiveness in the state of Indiana.
