Pathways to Success - Thursday, March 3

UCS will be holding its annual "Pathways to Success: Personalize your Journey Forward" this week - on Thursday, March 3, 2022. The program runs from 6:00 - 8:30 p.m. at Henry Ford II High School, 11911 Clinton River Road, Sterling Heights.

UCS Pathways to Success was established 15 years ago by the Superintendent's Student Advisory Board to ensure families and students are aware of the opportunities, services and programs available to all UCS students. To take advantage of these choices, it is critical that you create a specific game plan to learn more about your options as a UCS family. The choices you make today can have a domino effect on the options that may be available to your child tomorrow when it comes to secondary programs, college and career.

There are Breakout Sessions beneficial to families with students at all levels - elementary, Junior High, and High School. At the elementary, the programs include: "Get Set for Kindergarten", "Get Set for Elementary School", "Get Set for Junior High", "Learn More about AVID", UCS Art and Music programs, Special Education and more!
