Tools for School
Butler Tech needs business partners who are interested in providing internship and job shadowing experiences to our high school students and adult learners.
As one of Ohio’s largest career technical education centers, Butler Tech offers a broad array of career-focused education. Local businesses play an important role in furthering that education
by providing students hands-on opportunities to apply their learnings in real-world settings.
The Butler Tech Foundation was created as a resource to support Butler Tech students and give them opportunities to succeed in a career they can be passionate about. All funds raised from this event will go towards the purchase of tools for students that otherwise can’t afford them. Your sponsorship today will help students achieve their career goals for the future and positively impact our local workforce and economy.

The Butler Tech Career Exploration Lab is an interactive experience that combines tours, video learning, and hands-on activities designed to spark student interest in various career pathways. The Career Lab is located at our Fairfield Township campus.
Here’s how the Career Exploration Lab works:
Before their visit, students will complete a brief career assessment. When they arrive, they will learn about two program or occupational areas that best match the interests identified in the assessment, including:
- skills, abilities, and knowledge required
- career options by varying degree level
- average salary
- job outlook
- education required
- Ohio Department of Education Career Pathway
- Ohio Department of Education suggested secondary and post-secondary pathway.
Students will also take a walking tour of D. Russel Lee and the School of the Arts and enjoy a virtual tour of our Bioscience Center and Natural Science Center.
The Butler Tech Career Lab takes the place of the 8th-grade tours. Unlike the tours, which were limited to a single week, the Career Lab will be open throughout the school year making it easier to access. It also will help your school district meet the HB 487 Career Advising requirement.
