College Career Readiness

 

College and Career Readiness requires students to know more than just content. Students also need to demonstrate and apply what they know to solve problems. These skills include a blend of content knowledge specific skills, expertise and literacies.  The essential skills for success in today’s world include the following:

  • Learning and Innovation Skills (The Four C’s: Critical thinking, Communication, Collaboration, and Creativity)
  • Life and Career Skills
  • Information, Media, and Technological Skills

At the junior high level we encourage exploration of post-secondary options and possible careers based on students interests and abilities.

At Rio Norte we achieve this by :

  • 7th Grade Seminar Elective
  • Career Speakers
  • Naviance assessments and assignments
  • Pathway to my Future Extended Day Courses
