We are very pleased to let you know that the initial group of ten 10th grade students in the Innovative Pathways to Information Technology (IPTI) graduated from the IPTI class on June 29th. These students from the Metropolitan Business Academy in New Haven, CT started their training classes at Gateway Community College, and these 10 motivated students graduated and received a Certificate of Completion. A nice achievement on their part and many thanks to their instructor, Kris Tonski.
Over the course of 6 weeks of training, 2 hours in the classroom and 4 hours of homework, the students received instructions on how to design and develop a website. They learned HTML (Hypertext Markup Language), CSS (Cascading Style Sheets), and WP (Word Press). Pictured below, in the background, is a website that was developed by one of the students, and from left to right:

Microsoft awarded CfAL with a grant to fund this project, with a goal of motivating high school students to pursue a degree and or job in Computer Science / Information Technology.
Many thanks to our partners for helping these students pursue an Innovative Pathway to Information Technology.
