District Programs
Elementary Career Program
At this level, Career Specialists provide activities promoting career awareness to students in elementary grades (view our brochure to learn why this is important). The role of the career specialist is multifaceted; no two specialists do the exact same thing.  In fact, the duties of a career specialist are determined by the needs of the school(s) he/she serves.  In general, the mission of the career specialists is to incorporate career development into the schools to ensure that all students are prepared for the workplace of the 21st century.
 
Career specialists are curriculum consultants available to provide career activities, material resources, and individual student and group assistance.  Working with classroom teachers and faculty, they incorporate and integrate lessons, speakers and activities that emphasize real world careers and learning.

Career Specialists at the Elementary Level:
Middle School Career Program
At the Middle School level, Career Specialists provide a variety of opportunities for students to start thinking about the many career choices available to them in the future, stressing the importance of extracurricular activities, volunteering and community service. 

They make available the following activities, which encourage students to take an in-depth look at the variety of educational paths available to prepare them for their future:
  • an interest inventory and printout countaining information about jobs that complement their interests
  • a visit to the Career Center to see the career and technical training opportunities available during high school
  • a review  of their districts' graduation requirements and what is necessary to  gain entrance into further education/training or the world of work
  • an Individual Career Plan that is mailed home
  • IT's for Girls
  • SCRUBS
Secondary Career Program
At the High School level, Career Specialists work with students to continue assessing their interests, skills, and work values to determine potential career options.  Specialists arrange for opportunities for students to learn first-hand about various careers through career speakers, mock interviews, job shadow opportunities, field trips, and career fairs.  The career programs are developed to meet the specific needs of the district.  All high school students:

  • take career assessments that help them identify and research potential career fields
  • update their Individual Career Plans
  • create a Career Portfolio for use in job and/or college interviews
