Bond-Funded Projects Provide Students Career Opportunities

Student intern works on technology hardwareWe are grateful to Aurora voters for passing a $300 million bond measure in 2016, which will fund improvements at every school. This year, several APS students are working as interns on bond-funded projects, while earning credentials and gaining hands-on experience in alignment with our strategic plan, APS 2020.

The interns are preparing new classroom devices and installing interactive Promethean Whiteboards as part of the bond-funded technology refresh project. They are also learning to troubleshoot and resolve various technology issues.

Hinkley senior Tyreke Banks and Vista PEAK Preparatory junior Aaron Bustillos devote several hours each week to the projects with the APS Information Technology Department. “I originally wanted to be a lawyer, but I also like technology and coding. With the internship, I am furthering my learning experience so I can advance my career,” Banks said.
