(Delaware and Chester Counties, PA)—Delaware County Community College received a $700,000 grant for 2012-13 from the Chester County Regional Education System (CCRES). The grant will support the College’s participation with the Chester County Intermediate Unit (CCIU) at the Chester County Technical College High School Pennocks Bridge Campus.
Located in southern Chester County, the Pennocks Bridge Campus is a unique, state-of-the art, hybrid educational facility that provides career training and other educational services at both the secondary and post-secondary levels. Now entering its fifth year of operation, the school offers a wide range of quality programs and services that are affordable and accessible to southern Chester County and the surrounding area.
The College’s continued partnership with the CCIU has resulted in tremendous educational opportunity for residents of southern Chester County. The success of the collaboration is also reflected in the opening of the new Technical College High School in Downingtown. The new location features the College’s Brandywine Campus and gives students in the center of Chester County access to the same level of educational opportunity that students in the southern part of the county have enjoyed.
Established in 1999, CCRES’ mission is to ensure quality education and human service programs for children, families and schools. Through innovative partnerships, CCRES provides human resources, training and grant opportunities on a regional basis.
