Preparing for the 21st century and all of the technology know-how that it requires is what Muskingum County is anticipating. In a collaborative effort to create community “Tech-knowledge” centers for engaged learning, Zanesville City Schools, Ameritech, The Work Force Development Division of Muskingum County Job and Family Services, Even Start Family Family Literacy Grant, Area Labor Management Cooperative Council, and Mid-East Ohio combined forces to bring this program forth for the entire community to utilize. There were three Ameritech Grants of 25,000 dollars each through the Ohio Computing Center Network, which necessitated a 50 percent match where the other collaborative partners provided some grants. Total funding came to about 435,000 for the community project. There are currently two educational centers that the community can use. One more is due to open within the next month. The Community Tech-knowledge Centers are located at the James Madison Family Resource Center, Zanesville High School and opening soon, at the Metropolitan Family Center. To use the two centers that are currently open, call 588-42-24, or 454-11-88.
