Collaborative Partnerships

We have created partnerships with post-secondary and service providers to break down the notion that school only occurs within the walls of the classroom,” says Keith Johnson, Principal of James Fowler High School. Collaborative Partnerships are built upon shared interests between the school, parents, businesses and the community. All high school students can benefit from Collaborative Partnerships that allow them to job shadow in the business sector or offer them the support of a career mentor.

Facilitating Learning Pathways and Career Planning

Chinook’s Edge School Division

Chinook’s Edge School Division is in the process of reworking our approach to learner pathways and career planning. Our vision is that all students leave high school with a clear plan to transition to post-secondary (whether in apprenticeship training, college, or university) or the world of work, with confidence in their ability to implement or adapt their plan throughout their lives as they and the world around them change. This session will provide an overview of the actions that are being taken at the district level to support schools as they work towards that vision. Development of a scope and sequence, defining the roles of the career team, and connecting students to opportunities such as dual credit and off campus education will be discussed.
