Weekly Update--December 5, 2019


Celebrating Student Interns: Check out an awesome story from WRAL that celebrates several of our hard-working Facilities Tech students and their internships with Newcomb & Company and Piedmont Service Group. Students featured in the story have earned a full-time job after graduation and funding for completing their education at Wake Tech. 


Reminder about  Final Exams: Students will take final exams from December 13-17. Here is the link to the exam schedule and a permission form to leave early on certain exam days. Attendance on these days is extremely important as most final exams are state-mandated tests. All final exams count as 20% of the final course grade.


Anonymous School Safety Tip Line (919-856-1911): This tip line is a proactive way to help prevent and stop violence and other destructive behaviors at school. Call the tip line to report:

  • Threats of violence
  • Aggressive behavior
  • Weapons on campus
  • Drugs or alcohol on campus
  • Harassment
  • Vandalism
  • Suicide threats
  • Anything else harmful to school

At the end of the call, the operator will ask if the caller wants a call back about steps taken to address the situation reported. Callers may remain anonymous. WCPSS Security and schools act on information provided by callers.

The tip line provides a proactive way to report threats of violence and any other safety concerns about school. By using the tip line responsibly, students can play a valuable role in preventing violence at school. The tip line is strictly for reporting safety concerns.
