Something new: we are about to launch CareerCruising, which is an Internet-based career exploration and planning tool used by students to explore career and college options for developing a career plan. Career Cruising can be accessed from school, from home, or wherever a student has access to the Internet. There will be much more information coming about this new and helpful initiative. Here's a PDF file that provides an in-depth description.

We also have a new Transitions website that provides numerous links for post-high school opportunities for students and their parents. I highly recommend that you investigate this new platform.
