PURPOSE OF THIS CATALOG

The purpose of this program planning guide is to assist students and parents in selecting appropriate classes, planning a successful high school experience and preparing for a challenging future.  Now is the time when students must make some critical decisions about their future goals.  A vastly different labor market is developing.  The numbers and kinds of jobs are increasing, but so are the skills needed to succeed in these careers.  Communication skills are in high demand by employers.  So too, math skills, problem-solving abilities, teamwork, and technology skills are equally important for all students to master.  Opportunities for both college and technical preparation are available for students.  As parents, you can help your student make some very important choices in what she or he studies.  Both students and parents should read the course descriptions carefully and select courses that will assist students to meet the demands of the 21st century.  Our intention is to help students develop their greatest potential so that they can successfully achieve their postsecondary goals.
