LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) _ Lawrence business officials are looking for inspiration as they make plans for their portion of a career-training center.
The Lawrence Journal-World reports that the Lawrence Chamber of Commerce and the Lawrence school district are working together on the project. Last week, chamber representatives visited the Blue Valley school district's Center for Advanced Professional Studies in Overland Park to look for ideas.
The school district is constructing a new building for high school students, funded with a $5.7 million portion of $92.5 million in bonds that voters approved in April.
The chamber, meanwhile, will renovate an existing building for adult training. Chamber vice president of external affairs Hugh Carter says he's eager to find out what Lawrence employers are looking for and offer the relevant training.
