Welcome to the Four-to-Six Year Educational/Career Plan!
Goal Setting: What can I do this year to plan for future success? Reaching any career goal takes a personal commitment. Developing goals means learning how to make decisions and then setting action plans. Even if you still have no idea which career is right for you, it is possible to begin some preparation. Goal setting is discussed at every career planning meeting:
Academic Goals/Technical Goals: Earn high grades to be competitive, research academic and technical programs and colleges, take required assessment exams (PSAT, SAT, ASVAB, Accuplacer), if needed, get help improving study habits, use agenda book, work on junior/senior project, and portfolio.
Personal/Social Goals: Sports, volunteer and community service activities, clubs, and hobbies.
Workplace Readiness Goals/Career Goals: Part-time or Summer Employment, research job opportunities, ask about cooperative education for next year (if applicable), review your technical competencies to make sure you are on track, update resume, organize letters and certificates re: community service and make list of who you will ask for recommendations.
Activities during the sophomore, junior, and senior years assist students in preparing to market themselves upon graduation to either employers, colleges, or the military. Sophomores are trained on the use of the www.kudernavigator.com website to develop an electronic-format portfolio. Information on career goals, skills and competencies, achieved activities, clubs, organizations and awards, work projects and writing samples are stored here.
All subjects must be passed during the senior year to graduate.
All seniors must have completed all work and have a passing grade by senior release day.
All students must pass the 10th grade MCAS examination in the areas of English, Math and Science in accordance with State of Massachusetts standards, as established by the Mass Department of Education, as a prerequisite for receipt of a Northeast Metro Tech High School Diploma and Vocational Certificate.
All seniors are required to complete/pass the senior/junior project prior to graduation. Grades for junior/senior project submitted by related teacher to Vocational Coordinator and Principal as graduation requirements.
