How Does Career Related Learning Happen at Roosevelt?

At Roosevelt, we have a variety of programs and supports in place for students to explore careers. This includes bringing in career speakers, attending career and resume building workshops, participating in mock interviews, working alongside industry professionals in Career Technical Education (CTE) through job shadows and internships, and heading out to visit a workplace via "Career Days." In addition, Roosevelt offers multiple state-approved CTE programs of study that allows students to experience hands-on learning and acquire skills that are transferrable to a multitude of future career pathways. These CTE programs include Construction Technology, Computer Science, Engineering, Media Studies/ Mass Communication, and Multimedia/ Theatre Arts Production.



It’s important to start exploring careers now so students can think about what they might eventually like to do and understand the pathways to get there. The Oregon Department of Education has added emphasis on Career Related Learning: it's a graduation requirement. By the end of Senior year all students will need to participate in two Career Related Learning Experiences (“CRLE” for short–reflect on them) build a resume, and write a “My Plan Essay” (during Junior or Senior English class). NOTE: these requirements has been waived for the Class of 2021 due to Distance Learning.

We can help you feel more confident about finding post-secondary options and exploring possible careers, internships, colleges, apprenticeships, workforce training programs and/or military opportunities. This is a great PPS resource!
