CAREER ASSESSMENT INFORMATION FOR ALL 11th GRADERS- April 18

In June 2017, the EAA through ACT 94, required that a Career Readiness Assessment be administered to all grade eleven students (9GR-16) with two exceptions


1) The assessment must not be administered to any student with a disability, whose IEP team determines and agrees in writing that taking the assessment would not be aligned with the student’s program of study.


2) Students who meet the eligibility criteria for alternate assessment and the IEP team has determined that a career readiness assessment is appropriate will continue to take one of the approved career ready transition assessments identified by Greenville County’s Special Education Department.


o Grade 11 students (9GR-16) will be administered WIN via the paper format on April 18. Make-up testing, if needed, will be administered on April 25.

Career Fair March 27!!!!!!!!!!

It is that time to sign up for our Career Fair!! The Career Fair will be held in the main gym this year from 8:45-11:30. We are asking for this to be 11th and 12th grade students, as many companies will be looking to hire students. If you’re interested in bringing your class of 11th or 12th grade students, please use the Google Form link below to sign up your class. You can choose 1st, 2nd, or 3rd period. I will send out more information closer to the event, including a list of companies who are scheduled to attend. We would like for students to be more engaged with companies, instead of standing around and talking to one another. Any ideas or incentives for student engagement would be helpful! Last year, I did a BINGO card for candy.
