CCSD’s new CTAE handbook, “Focus on the Future,” went home with 8th graders this month as they prepare to register for their high school classes. The handbook highlights the 38 Career Pathways offered at CCSD schools, with information on the classes required and possible career options in various fields, along with Dual Enrollment and Work-Based Learning. Career Pathways are an option for all CCSD students, whether they plan to attend college or start a career immediately after high school. Some Pathway courses count as a required fourth science credit, and 19 current Pathways lead to nationally recognized industry certification. The handbook is posted on our website here. Parents are encouraged to look through the handbook with their student and talk about possible areas of interest. Additional information can be found on the CCSD Careers webpage.
