School Improvement-Career Awareness
Questions to ask:
How would you approach this new language and/or incorporate into your existing strategies?
What are you/we already doing that supports this?
What makes sense for the different grade levels? (you determine)
How could you enhance your current SIP goals to include more career related opportunities?
How could we enhance our existing relationships with businesses/community?
The GISD will host a Spring School Improvement Workshop that will highlight all changes!
