College and Career Readiness

Our mission is for all students to graduate
college-prepared and career-ready. 
 

Being ready for a career means that a high school graduate has the knowledge and skills needed to qualify for and succeed in the postsecondary job training and/or education necessary for their chosen career (i.e. community college, technical/vocational program, apprenticeship or significant on-the-job training). 

Would you be willing to give 45 minutes of your time to talk with our students about what you do? 

We need adults to come to speak about the various jobs that are available out in the world. By exposing students to different jobs and career fields they are able to begin to make thoughtful choices about their future educational pursuits. Just as we have many types of jobs,  we also have many types of students. You could be the inspiration to a student to consider a career and help inspire them to pursue a career in your field.

We hope to offer at least one presentation monthly to our students to expose and inspire them to think about their future and begin to consider their own pathway to success. Students need the opportunity to learn about different occupations and the importance of the subjects they study that can lead them into various careers.  Presentations are scheduled for approximately 35-45 minutes and for groups of about 30 students. If you would be willing to come to share about your work please email Ms. Roth for more info: mroth@hartdistrict.org.
