Frenship ISD places emphasis on college and career readiness in the 2016 Strategic Plan by stating “all learners will be prepared for the college or career pathway of their choice.” This preparation begins with the elementary students and each elementary campus has chosen various ways to implement the strategy. One of the ways they have focused on college and career choices is by hosting College Week and/or Career Days in September. Students and teachers participated in dress up days, pep rallies and welcomed professionals from the community to remind students to look ahead to life after high school.
Middle school students in Frenship ISD are also focusing on college and career choices by taking field trips to local universities, hosting community members at a career fair, taking career interest inventory tests and taking a College and Career Readiness class. In the class, students go over five endorsements, 16 clusters and numerous pathways that help them determine the coursework they will take in high school. They do activities that relate to each career and discuss the skills needed and education requirements for each.
As part of the same initiative, Frenship High School will host College and Career Night on October 11 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm in the cafeteria. More information on this event can be found here.
