NEW BERLIN —  Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch is scheduled to visit the New Berlin School District the morning of Thursday, March 9, to get a first-hand look at some of the district's efforts to help students find and even start careers.

New Berlin is a recognized leader in the state in that area.

First, Kleefisch will visit with Superintendent Joe Garza, other administrators, teachers and students to learn more about the initiatives. That meeting will be at the district office inside Eisenhower Middle/High School, 4333 S. Sunnyslope Road.

The main focus of the presentations will be on college and career readiness programs; STEM education; certified nursing assistant programming; entrepreneurship skills accelerator; business education partnerships; and post-secondary alignment.

Then Kleefisch will tour Eisenhower to see the certified nursing assistant lab, the TechKNOW program, a student-centered technology support program, and other programs.

The visit will come three weeks after Governor Scott Walker visited New Berlin West High School to see student and staff presentations and to offer remarks.
