Details of Plan to Convert Ridgewood High to Tech School Begin to Emerge

Heading into their Nov. 7 meeting, Pasco County School Board, located in northwest Florida, members said they harbored concerns about superintendent Kurt Browning’s proposal to transform Ridgewood High School into a magnet technical school.

The school would offer academic and technical courses, packaged together in defined four-year plans based on subject tracks leading to industry certifications and some college degrees. There would be a range of offerings, from robotics and biomedical studies to welding and plumbing. Basic and higher-level courses would be available.
