The Graphic Arts program is one of nine CTE programs offered through the Clare-Gladwin Career Center to students from Beaverton, Clare, Farwell, Gladwin, Harrison, and Coleman High Schools. The students learn about the various aspects and careers in the graphics and printing industries.
They spend half of their school day in the CTE program and the other half in their home high school.
The Recovery Court, which took its first participant in July of 2012, is aimed at defendants who have been charged with substance abuse offenses or which display substance abuse as an underlying factor in other offenses. The four phase program is designed to last eighteen to twenty-four months. In the first two phases, participants are required to attend Recovery Court sessions biweekly and to report to their probation officer on the “off” weeks; to submit to frequent alcohol and drug testing; to attend at 12-step meetings and substance abuse counseling, to complete community service. Requirements in the last two phases may be reduced by the Court. Prior to graduation, all fines and costs, including a separate Recovery Court fee must be paid. Currently the Court has over twenty participants at various phases in the two counties.
The Court has been funded thus far by State Court Administrative Office grants for startup, implementation and continuation. In addition to the grant funds, both Clare and Gladwin counties have contributed funds to supplement the Court.
