About Sno-Isle TECH
Sno-Isle TECH, located near Paine Field in Everett, is a cooperative effort of 14 local school districts. The purpose of each program is to provide students with skills that will prepare them for entry-level jobs after graduation from high school or for related post-high school education or training.
Occupations are organized into broad clusters or “pathways” based on characteristics of the job. The 20 programs offered at Sno-Isle TECH fall into one of these five Pathways: Information Technology, Business Marketing & Management, Human Services, Science & Health, and Trade & Industry.
Applications to Sno-Isle TECH open in February for entrance into fall classes. Instructor interviews of students submitting applications will be conducted at Sno-Isle TECH later that spring.

What to Expect
Students interested in attending Sno-Isle TECH should have a good attendance record at their sending high school and give careful consideration to their degree of interest in making a commitment to a particular program. This is especially important because the programs are one or two years in length.

The second session is from 11:10 to 1:40 each afternoon. Students in this session attend their regular classes at the sending high school in the morning.
Transportation to Sno-Isle TECH is provided by the sending school district.
