Secondary Instruction Career and Planning Guide
The Career and Educational Planning Guide is intended to assist students as they make plans for their career that will lead to a rewarding and enjoyable future. We urge students and parents to work with the school faculty to review the information in this book in preparation for creating the students' Personal Plan of Study. The Personal Plan of Study, unique to each student, outlines courses that align with future education and career goals. Each year you will revisit the student's Personal Plan of Study. When students see the relevancy of high school course work to what they aspire to in their future, they are more apt to take school more seriously and enroll in more rigorous courses. Remember, course selection is very important and schedule changes can be very difficult.
Parents, please familiarize yourselves with the abundance of information in the book and actively participate with your school and student in creating and reviewing your child's personal plan of study. Students rank parents as the most influential people in their lives. Challenge your students to set high standards, select courses and school activities which directly help them achieve personal and career goals, work hard to achieve these goals and attend classes daily. Embrace the power of your influence and genuinely engage in educational pursuits with your child(ren).
We look forward to partnering with you for a successful year. Please don't hesitate to contact us if we can be of assistance.
