Please as your child about the project that they are working on. We have completed a career interest survey. From there the students are finding out what jobs are available in the areas of their interest. We are in the process of identifying what schools they can attend in-state and out-of- state to pursue their careers. An interesting part they have completed was a Reality Check. They found out how much money they would need to make to live the life they are interested in.
