7th and 8th Graders, High School & Beyond

About half of our 7th and 8th graders were recently introduced to their High School & Beyond Plan during Health, Office Tech, or in Edgenuity meetings.  This high school requirement starts in middle school with Career Planner, an online application found on each student's Clever homepage under Graduation Resources/School Data Solutions.  More information can be found by watching this video or PPT: 





If your student wasn’t present during the Career Planner lesson or has Health or Office Tech 2nd semester, they are welcome to watch this video now and explore the Career Planner app.  The surveys are fun and provide interesting and valuable insight on preferences, interests, and skills that students already have AND may want to explore throughout the next 4-5 years.
