Description: 

A person's career is considered their "journey" through life, and the Career Education curriculum offers students the opportunity to pursue this journey in personally meaningful and goal-oriented ways.  Career-life development with intent is the ongoing process of self-discovery, growth in competence, and learning from experiences in educational, work-related, and personal life contexts.  The Career Education curriculum supports students in becoming successful, educated citizens by helping them learn how to effectively manage their life journey toward preferred future possibilities.  This area of learning requires students to identify and develop their personal interests, passions, and competencies.  Students reflect on learning experiences in school and community, build confidence through their contributions, and explore multiple career-life roles and choices.
