Attendance Options
In order to meet the vocational needs of the population, Sussex Tech provides two attendance options, full time and shared-time, which are available to all high school students in the county at no cost. Local school districts provide transportation.
Full-time, the most popular option, provides students with a complete high school education in a vocational technical environment. Students are transported directly to Sussex Tech where they receive all the necessary instruction and course offerings to meet state requirements. In addition to the mandated courses, full time students receive a thorough knowledge of selected trade areas and sufficient credits for college entrance. Diversified offerings in clubs and athletics are provided to round out the students' high school life.
 
Shared-time This permits students to attend their high school for half of the day for specific courses required for graduation. The student is transported to Sussex Tech for the other half of the day to receive instruction in one of the 20 different technical areas.
 
Child Study Team Services * (Ext. 246)
Sussex County Technical School has a full-time Child Study Team which includes a school psychologist, social worker, and learning disability teacher consultant.
