What is Career Connected Learning?

Career connected learning allows students to explore and prepare for a broad range of careers.  The school district forms partnerships with local businesses to bring mentors to the classroom or students to the workplace.  There is a broad variety of career connected opportunities and ways to get involved from guest speakers who discuss their career pathway to business internship programs. It is our goal to forge a partnership between students, schools and local employers where everyone makes an investment and all receive value.

Some types of career connected learning are guest speakers, job shadows, mock interviews, mentoring, internships (along with flipped internships where the company comes to the classroom), worksite tours, career fairs and youth apprenticeships.

What is Career Connected Learning?

Career connected learning can be as simple as an a community member visiting a classroom and talking about what they do. Or a job shadow where a student learns more about an occupation or business. Or in some cases it can be an internship, or a registered apprenticeship, where students are paid while they obtain real-life and hands-on skills.
