Shift Happens

The Changing Role of Student Services

career career and academic
Accustomed not to “mess with” what students were taking at home high school

Not worry with adults’ academic future or needs - just focus on technical skills

Career plan

Important to look at entire picture – are students taking courses that will help them reach their career goals, both academic and technical

SREB research shows that simply encouraging students to take higher level math and science makes a difference in achievement level

Adults – technical skills always important, but academic skill attainment important as well; need to identify their next steps, academic and technical

Individual plan of study

Career  Career and Academic
starting early
Starting early…..

Sophomore tours are the start of “career development” for career and technology students.

Middle school is the new “sophomore” level to work jointly with partner schools to begin career awareness and exploration activities, with a tentative plan of study developed by the end of 8th or 9th grade.

Hard part: moving that plan of study through the pipeline and having it for 10-11-12 grade

transition support
Transition Support
  • Have always been concerned about moving students to employment – also have to now look at what support we are providing to move students through educational levels
    • Middle school to high school
    • High school to tech center
    • Tech center to postsecondary
why do we study math
Why do we study math?
  • It’s hard and we have to learn hard stuff at school. We learn easy stuff at home like manners. Corrine, Grade K
  • It always comes after reading. Roger, Grade 1
  • All the calculators might run out of batteries or something. Thomas, Grade 1
  • It’s important. It’s a law from the President and it says so in the Bible on the first page. Jolene, Grade 2
  • You can drown if you don’t. Amy Beth, Grade 2
math continued
Math, continued
  • You have to count if you want to be an astronaut. Like 10, 9, 8 blast off! Michael, Grade 1
  • You could never find the right page. Maryanne, Grade 1
  • My teacher could get sued if we don’t. That’s what she said, any subject we don’t know-Wham! She gets sued. And she’s already poor. Corky, Grade 3
