Exploration and Options
All sophomores will attend an information/exploration session in the IMC at which time they will continue to utilize the NAVIANCE Program.  “The Career Planner” will be the primary focus in order to allow students to begin to focus on career exploration and development of potential majors that incorporate their current interests . After the completion of the “Do What You Are modular ” on computer, all sophomores are expected to meet with their counselor. At these meetings they will discuss and compare their computer printout of this information, their school performance, as well as their own plans for finishing high school and moving on to the Next Step. This time will also be spent on a review of the Four-Year-Plan.
The "Career Planning” module  will generate:
  • An interest profile
  • A career choices area check list
  • Job descriptions for those areas for which one may have a preference
  • Educational requirements listing for selected jobs
  • An analysis of many of the worker traits necessary for successful workers in the stipulated field (work environment, physical demands, aptitudes necessary, etc.)
  • Earnings projections
  • Employment outlook
  • Suggested high school courses
