100% College/Career Ready
To receive a diploma, each senior must be College and/or Career Ready. This ambitious goal is always on my mind. I feel the need to explain what it means and does not mean to me and for our Rockets. This goal drives us to create individual success plans for seniors not there yet. It pushes us to listen to our students for ways to offer earlier opportunities for success. It makes us reflect on practices (or search for new ideas) to better prepare our students for the ACT, ASVAB, WorkKeys, KOSSA, & Industry Certifications. It is not only about test scores, points in an accountability system, or ways to manipulate student schedules to get complete career pathways. It is about being LIFE ready. We create positive relationships with students, add value to each one every day, and push them to see that the world is full of opportunity. No we don’t have 100% CCR today, but we will continue to move forward, and make it happen for each of our students.
