Chapter 622 is a state law and Title VI, Title IX, and Section 504 are federal laws.  All require that equal educational opportunities must be given to all, regardless of sex.  Inquiries regarding compliance with Title VI, Title IX, Section 504 and Chapter 622 may be directed to the Assistant Superintendent/Principal, Pathfinder Regional Vocational Technical High School, 240 Sykes Street, Palmer, MA  01069, (413) 283-9701.

Pathfinder Tech offers a wide range of vocational technical programs that give students a competitive advantage both in college and the workforce. These sixteen programs are designed to help students create and follow pathways to a career of their choice.  Pursue your passion and enjoy your education!

The Cooperative Education Program at Pathfinder is an optional experience for seniors and juniors (second half of the school year) having a minimum 1,000 hours in their technical area. Through a cooperative arrangement between the school and employer, the student will receive job placement related to their technical area of study during their “shop week” with wages paid by the employer. To be eligible, a student must have the recommendation of their technical program teachers, meet the required grade, attendance, and discipline standards. The student must also have their OSHA 10-hour card. Some technical areas may require additional certifications prior to entering the program.
