Work Ethic Certificate


New for this year, Tipton High School will be offering a Work Ethic Certificate (WEC) to graduating seniors beginning with the Class of 2018.  The WEC is awarded to those students who have demonstrated those “soft skills” that employers seek in their work force.  Those skills would be closely aligned with the Tipton Community School Corporation’s positive behavior plan – PRIDE (Personal Best, Respect, Integrity, Dependability, Enthusiasm).  Local employers would provide special consideration to those THS graduates who possess the WEC.

While PRIDE focuses on five character skills, the goal of the program is for graduating seniors to earn a WEC that documents a student’s proficiency in those five character skills as well as in four other measures:  attendance (98%), behavior (less than 1 discipline referral), community/school service (6 hours), and grade point average  (GPA of at least 2.0).  The WEC shows that graduates possess the soft skills necessary to succeed in any post-secondary endeavor and, when supported and implemented by businesses and organizations, greatly enhances a community’s ability to meet workforce needs.

THS is currently working with local business and industry partners who will honor the WEC earned by graduates.  Those employers are asked to support the program by offering those graduates with a WEC -  a guaranteed job interview, an applicant pool preference,  an increase base pay,  or some other incentives.

The Governor’s State Workforce Innovation Council views the development and adoption of a community and employer recognized Work Ethic Certificate (WEC) as an important tool that can help provide a pipeline of skilled high school graduates into today’s workforce.  This initiative is especially important in the Tipton community where we are “working together for student success.”

For more information on Tipton High School’s Work Ethic Certificate, contact Carrie Capshaw, ccapshaw@tcsc.k12.in.us

WeatherBug's Lightning Alert System at Tipton

WeatherBug's Lightning Alert System at Tipton
Tipton Community School Corporation is a WeatherBug School. The WeatherBug Program collects weather data from our local site. This information is available to anyone in the community. Individual only need to download the program on their computer or app on their smartphone to receive weather information directly from Tipton. (Google WeatherBug)

As a WeatherBug School, TCSC has included the Lightning Alert System. The outdoor alerting system is a valuable community tool in alerting not only school patrons, but also patrons of the city park, the baseball diamonds, and fairground participants when lightning is in the immediate area. This system will sound a horn when lightning is detected eight miles away. This is a warning that people outside should seek shelter. (Click on the Blog's title to see full article including a map showing the range of the Lightning Alert System.)

Tipton_Proposed_Horn_Placement.pngApproximate range of the Lightning Alert Horns at TCSC.
When lightning is within 8 miles of the school, a fifteen (15) second alarm will sound. When lightning has cease to exist within this range for at least thirty (30) minutes, an all-clear signal will be given which is a series of three (3) short alarms of (5) seconds in duration each. Lightning alerts will also be received through individuals’ downloaded computer and phone applications.

The alarms will be activated between the hours of 6:00 am through 10:00 pm. This will prevent the alarms being sounded through the night or early morning hours.
