Pathways Improvement Scope

Most students in our district cannot envision themselves in a career, doing work they like, and earning a living wage. Experiences are essential for them to understand they belong in that setting. With this grant, coordinators will assist pathways in developing WBL experiences, including internships. Many students attend college without direction. Through this grant, college courses will be provided so students can understand they belong in college, and can earn a certificate or degree.
