Update:

March 20th: 
The A-Tech Campus will be closed March 23rd-27th during Spring Break.

March 18th: 

The Cleveland Food Bank will be at A-Tech tomorrow, Thursday March 19th between 10:00 a.m. and noon.  Individuals are to remain in their vehicles and food bank items will be handed through windows.  We will use the Automotive Technologies Lab for this food distribution.  So if you have transportation and need some additional items please stop by between those hours.

March 17th: 

All A-Tech students have been sent information to their school email address (Google Account) regarding how to access assignments for their classes. Instructors can be contacted through Google Classroom or at their school email. Here is a link to the staff directory. This will be an ongoing process for students completing assignments and receiving additional assignments.  Please do not hesitate to contact our instructors with questions.    

Those students who do not have internet access will receive assignments in the mail by the U.S. Postal Service. Completed assignments can be returned through the mail (a return envelope has been included in each mailing and A-Tech will pay for the postage) or assignments can be dropped off at the High School Principal’s Office between 8:00 and 3:00 Monday through Friday. The Principal's Office will not be open during our scheduled Spring Break (March 23rd-27th). Additional mailings will take place as new assignments become available.

Students on Early Placement will need to continue to have their employer complete the weekly Employer Rating Sheet and Early Placement Log.  Copies of these forms can be found on the Student Forms Page. Completed forms can be returned either at the High School Principal’s Office or photos of the completed forms can be emailed to your career-technical instructor and Mr. Kimmel.

In an effort to stop the spread of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus), Governor Mike DeWine has closed all Ohio Public Schools for a minimum of three weeks. 


Friday, March 13th is the last day for A-Tech students. 


A-Tech students will not report from March 16th through April 3rd. 


During this time, in order to help our students continue to learn, our instructors are devising lessons that can be delivered online. Students will receive that information in class or through their school email account. 


Students who do not have internet access at home will receive printed materials either from their instructors on March 13th or via US Mail. 


There is no expectation for students to work online during the regularly scheduled Spring Break (March 23rd-27th).


The safety and security of students and staff is our highest priority at the Ashtabula County Technical & Career Campus. 


We will continue to monitor the situation and collect the latest information about COVID-19 (Coronavirus) from local, state and Federal government agencies to keep our students and staff safe and prepared.  Please refer back to this web page for the latest information.
