Nice to know: Thanks to businesses for support

Albert Lea Area Schools would like to thank our local businesses who supported our work-based learning programs this school year.  Students from our diversified occupations, diversified work program (ALC), school and work based learning, transition program, work experience, and youth apprenticeship programs were able to partake in highly valuable learning experiences with local employers. Without your support, these experiences would not be available to our students. Thank you for everything this year to enhance our students’ learning.

Thanks to:
