CTE: NEW BEGINNINGS with a NEW DIRECTION

For the 2014-15 school year, the Rich Township High School District will began to incorporate the 16 National Career Clusters into the course selection process. These tools, Plans of Study and Career Pathways, are ways for students to group their required courses and electives into a cohesive sequence in preparation for college and careers. Utilizing the National 16 Career Clusters, students can identify pathways from high school to work, two-and four-year schools, and even graduate school. By connecting education to future goals, our students will be motivated to work harder and enroll in more rigorous and relevant courses.

A Career Pathway is a series of connected education and training programs and student support services that enable individuals to secure a job or advance in a demand industry or occupation. Career Pathways focus on easing and facilitating student transition from high school to community college; from pre-college courses to credit postsecondary programs; and from community college to university or employment.

Career Pathways Initiative Goals:

  • To articulate and ease student transitions across the education continuum from high school to community college; from pre-college to postsecondary; and from community college to university or a job, and
  • To increase the number of RTHS District students with certificates, credentials, and degrees in demand occupations
  • The vision of the Career Pathways is clear: Every student in District 227 will have limitless opportunities and limitless experiences which will open up the door to limitless possibilities. These options are invaluable opportunities for our students to further their knowledge and understanding of their chosen career field, and to be better prepared for success after they graduate from high school.
