    Course Selection for next year 

    In early December, the school counselors will be meeting with juniors during their US History classes to finalize their Course Selection for 12th grade. Before Course Selection, students will hear from their teachers about course offerings during C^3 Day (Curriculum, College & Careers), and they are encouraged to talk with parents, siblings and teachers about possible course options. Please have them choose their classes through their PowerSchool portal. 
     
    Please contact your child's counselor with any questions.

    Follow the steps on the Course Requests for Next Year tab to prepare for the meeting with the counselor.

    Career Exploration

    Job Shadowing

    Juniors are encouraged to participate in at least one Job Shadowing experience to observe an adult in a "day on the job". Interested students should contact Mrs. Harmer, D200 Career Facilitator for suggestions and possible job shadowing locations. Students must complete and return two forms to Mrs. Harmer (aharmer@wcusd200.org) in order to be excused for this absence:

    Job Shadowing Parent Permission form

    Job Shadowing Teacher Permission form 

     

    Post High School Planning Curriculum - check out the activities that students will explore to plan for their futures.

     

    Xello Career Exploration (find the Xello link under wcusd200.org bookmarks)

    In February, counselors will work with Juniors to further explore the world-of-work through a presentation and the Xello online Career Exploration program. They will learn about the upcoming SAT, how to search for 2 and 4 year programs (community college, trade school, university) and complete a grade-level appropriate lesson of their choosing. Students are encouraged to return to their Xello portfolio frequently to complete more lessons and use the Xello tools (i.e. Application Tracker) to prepare for life after high school.
