COLLEGE & CAREERS
Every student should have a plan for life after high school. In order to assist each student with the development of a plan, all graduates must complete the requirements for the high school exit interview. During the interview students will share information related to their unique career development. Ideally that development begins in elementary school and proceeds through middle school and high school as students engage in specific career development activities based on their interests, values and skills. The high school exit interview is the culmination of students' career development where they demonstrate a clear understanding of their post-secondary education options and essential activities needed to achieve their career/ life goals.
