The Garrett County Board of Education voted on January 12, 2021, to accept the Superintendent’s recommendation to remain in the “red model” in which students are learning virtually. Students will begin transitioning back to in-person learning when the Garrett County metrics are at 5% or less positivity rate and 15 or less per 100,000 for 14 consecutive days.

Anyone with a question or concern may contact, and you will receive a response.

Career and Technology Education


Automotive Mechanic

Automotive Mechanics I

The students in this class are introduced to basic information on safety, tools, shop manuals, electricity, ASE certification, and vehicle maintenance. This class prepares students to more fully comprehend the classes that provide in-depth coverage of auto mechanics.


Automotive Mechanics II

This class presents four automotive systems to the students: 1) chassis and front end; 2) fuel systems; 3) automotive electrical systems; and 4) emission control systems. The construction and operation of the parts of these systems are studied. Also included in this course are troubleshooting and repair of parts involved in these systems. This sequential study is intended to provide a sound background for doing actual repairs.


Automotive Mechanics III-M

This class presents the four most complicated automotive systems to senior students: 1) engine tune-up; 2) engine service and repair; 3) automotive drive train; and 4) accessory systems. This formal instruction is combined with the students operating a small scale automotive repair facility, and the opportunity to participate in two nationally ranked contests for high school auto mechanic students.
