2/9/2024
HARRISBURG – Reps. Shelby Labs (R-Bucks) and Craig Staats (R-Bucks) announced today that Upper Bucks County Technical School was awarded an $85,000 grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Education’s (PDE) Competitive Equipment Grants.

Competitive Equipment Grants are for school districts and career and technical centers with eight or more PDE-approved CTE programs. These funds are used for updating or purchasing new equipment used in the training of students. 

“I am thrilled to see Upper Bucks County Technical School receive this grant from PDE,” said Labs. “This funding will go toward supporting students who are aiming for a career in the trades, which we need desperately here in Pennsylvania. I will always support our technical school students, and I know the staff at Upper Bucks Tech will use this grant to do just that.” 

“As a long-time supporter of Upper Bucks County Technical School, it is fantastic to see them receive this grant money,” said Staats. “It is proof of the hard work and strong technical education they give to students across Upper Bucks that they were awarded this grant from PDE. Congratulations to Dr. Herrera and his staff!”
