Maine Township District 207 believes that it is our duty to not only prepare our students for the next stage of their education, but to prepare students to pursue that education in the context of their career interests. To that end, each of our students engage in a career exploration program that helps them learn about their aptitudes and interests, explore careers that complement those individual characteristics and proclivities, explore postsecondary educational requirements associated with those careers, and determine a pathway to reach a career goal.
Our career pathways are designed to provide a combination of rigorous and high-quality education, training, and other services that align both vertically and horizontally across Secondary Education, Adult Education, Workforce Training and Development, Career and Technical Education, and Postsecondary Education systems, pathways, and programs. Collaborative partnerships with these entities and our colleagues in business and industry, along with other community stakeholders, serve as the foundational structure for high-quality and sustainable career pathways. A career pathway also includes multiple entry and exit points to help our students build their skills for career and life success as they progress along a continuum of education and training, advancing their ability to obtain the education they want in a career sector they love.
For more information regarding our Career Pathways program, please contact your counselor or visit the Career & College Resource Center (CCRC) to meet with your school’s career and college admissions specialist or the career coordinator.
