Educational Resources

Carpentry
Sussex Technical High School staff has assembled these online resources for families that want students to continue practicing their skills during the school closure. We will add to these resources and expand this page moving forward.

We are not offering online classes, teaching new material, requiring student participation, or grading any assignments during this time. Not all of our students have Internet access at home, and we cannot offer education to some students while leaving out others.
