There’s a new academic partnership in the Hudson Valley to prepare at-risk high school students for jobs in technology. It launches out of Poughkeepsie in the fall of 2015.

The public-private partnership brings together Dutchess Community College, the Poughkeepsie City School District, and Central Hudson Gas & Electric Corporation. It is funded through the New York State Pathways in Technology Early College High School, or P-TECH, grant. Dr. Pamela Edington is president of Dutchess Community College.
