This year we are excited to complete and implement our Pathways ReVisioning as an extension of our strategic plan. The ReVisioning process began as a way to ensure that Mountain Home Public Schools students were career and life ready. We have identified four key focus areas that we call “The 4 C’s”: Communication, Collaboration, Critical Thinking, and Creativity.
We have also worked to align the district’s current career-related course offerings from Kindergarten through two-year degrees or certifications at ASUMH. In an effort to provide career exposure at the early grades, the Project Lead The Way program was implemented in grades K through 6. A career and life readiness curriculum has also been developed for implementation at all grade levels.
District personnel collaborated with students to identify what career/life readiness means and how our work will support students.
Career/Life Readiness Definition: Career and life readiness means students finish high school with the knowledge, skills, grit and perseverance to achieve their goals. They qualify for and succeed in the postsecondary job training and/or education necessary for their chosen career by demonstrating communication, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity.
