Opportunities exist for students to produce half hour segments for the local Comcast cable channel. These half hour segments are centered on student interests and promote activities associated with the school district. Students also operate the high school's print shop, creating banners, signs, programs and paper products for the school and community. Many of these items are available for sale at Bison Corner, the high school's student store. The program follows the Pennsylvania Department of Education's approved scope and sequence for Communications Technology; therefore, a Capstone Career Exploratory experience is available to students in the senior year. As a recognized Program of Study, students can take advantage of numerous statewide and local articulation agreements to gain post secondary credits.
