Senior Graduation Requirements
Importance of Freshman Year and Career Cruising
Next week Mrs. Rosenbaum and Mrs. Sproule will spend two days in the classroom with all of our 9th grade students. The first day freshmen will learn about the importance of freshman year, how many credits are needed to graduate, how many regents exams are needed to graduate, different diploma types, what happens if they fail a course, what a transcript is, how a transcript is used, and that for most students their transcript began in 8th grade with their language grade.
The second day our freshmen will complete the Career Cruising assessment. We will help students identify three career clusters they would like to learn more about. In English class, students will continue with the Career Connect program they began last year. They will complete a research project on a career and attend a career exploration field trip in the spring.
We will also show students how we, as their school counselor, will continue to use the Career Cruising program as a tool to help with high school planning and college/career planning.
