area school district considering CDL training for students and community | Best Stories


CRANDON, Wisconsin (WAOW) – The Crandon School District is considering offering commercial driver license training to students and the community.

The high school counselor said he wants to prepare students for life outside of high school and be ready to take any opportunity that comes their way.

The course would be a three-day course that offers the possibility of receiving a CDL learner’s permit. Once licensed, students can participate in full license training for their full CDL at their workplace.

Getting the high school permit will take one step out of the hiring process and give participants an insight into the job.

“If they can leave our school even if it’s just with the permit and take the next step, it’s kind of a nice boost when looking for another job,” said Jessica Keao, counselor at Crandon high school.

The district will be partnering with Karl’s Transport for the course. Keao said it will be donated to the community. Currently, they are still trying to gauge interest before finalizing a time and date.
