    Our charge

    Ensure that each student graduates from high school prepared for college and careers and equipped with the knowledge, skills and dispositions necessary to thrive in the 21st century.


    Our plan

    The College and Career Readiness (CCR) Master Plan is our district’s plan for delivering on our promise to students and families that when students graduate they will have the strong foundation of content and technical skills, as well as the critical thinking, communication, and problem-solving skills and experience they need to thrive in this rapidly changing world.

  • College & Career Readiness Pathways

    Did you know that in high school you will have the opportunity to be in a career-related pathway? Based on your interests, you will be enrolled in classes related to a particular sector, like health, design, computer science, engineering, etc. The school district understands how important it is for our students to be prepared for college and career, and we think that focusing your class work on real world skills and projects is a key part of your education.
