Oconomowoc High School Career-Connected Learning Resource Guides

(View Complete Item Description)

This career-connected learning document houses two resource guides for both teachers and students at Oconomowoc High School. Each resource guide is modeled after the DPI's Academic & Career Planning resource: Know, Explore, Plan & Go. While exploring our school's current status in regards to career-connected learning, we discovered a need for an accessible, centralized resource for current and future educators. After collecting student feedback, we also discovered that students have a need for an accessible, centralized resource guide, as well. This document is a living document, and as career-connected learning evolves and expands at Oconomowoc High Scholl, our goal is that our resource guides not only helps make that possible, but evolves as well.These documents will be housed in Class Link, in Xello, and under staff and student bookmarks on our school's intranet.
