The Carpentry Program Of Study (POS) has tasks associated with interior finish. Each Carpentry student has an educational plan that articulates the secondary career and technical programs to postsecondary degree or diploma or certificate programs through the PDE's .SOAR program. The interior stair project is a level three project which not only involves stairs, but drywall, trim, wall finish, and wall framing. Currently there are nine students working on individual projects. Students build everything from construction grade lumber, boards, or plywood. The only piece that the student did not make is the handrail. The starting box newel, balusters, and stair treads were all student built. The shop is currently full of stair projects at various stages of finish. (October 2018)
