Pinckney Community Schools says it recently became the first school district in the nation to start a cybersecurity program.
Jim Darga is the director of the Cybesecurity Institute at Pinckney Community Schools.
He says students are learning skills that are already in high demand in the professional world.
"They're embarking on a potential career that could go in a lot of different directions," Darga says. "Because all aspects, whether it's business, government, military -- all need cybersecurity professionals now."
