The Pittsburgh Public Schools board unanimously approved three new Career and Technology Education partnerships tonight.

The district will partner with Community College of Allegheny County to support the health careers program, including enabling students to take concurrent enrollment college credit courses.

It also will have a partnership with the Carpenters' Union, which will provide tours of the union facilities and conduct a workshop on how to join the union. The district this fall reopened its carpentry program at Pittsburgh Westinghouse 6-12 and Carrick High School.

The board also approved partnering with Apple, which will provide student technology workshops, field trips and shadowing experiences for students in the programs of information technology and business administration/business of sports academy.
