How does Career Related Learning happen at Grant?
We build in lots of infrastructure for students to explore careers, from their Freshman Community Career Fairs and working alongside professionals in Career Technical Education (CTE) classes to attending the NW Youth Careers EXPO in Sophomore year and then, as Juniors and Seniors, students actually visit workplaces. Information on registering for events is on the College & Career Center Instagram and in the Friday Bulletin - posted on the Grant website homepage and emailed to students and parents/guardians every Friday during the academic year.
It’s important to start exploring careers now so students can think about what they might eventually like to do and understand the pathways to get there. The Oregon Department of Education has added emphasis on Career Related Learning: it's a graduation requirement. By the end of Senior year, all students will need to participate in two Career-Related Learning Experiences (“CRLE” for short–reflect on them with forms on the left-hand side of this page), build a resume (we do this in Junior English class), and write a “My Plan Essay” (during Senior English class).
We can help you feel more confident about finding post-secondary options and exploring possible careers, internships, colleges, apprenticeships, workforce training programs, and/or military opportunities. This is a great PPS resource!
PPS has partnered with GetSchooled to offer resources for college planning, including quick videos regarding colleges, advice, essays, and scholarships.
