4 The Next Step Program and the Four Year Plan The purpose of the Next Step Program and the goal of Lemoore High School is to encourage all students to tailor their education plans toward reaching their long term personal and career goals. This is done by creating a Four Year Plan, which is the selection of specific classes and activities designed to fit students goals, thus allowing them to graduate with the maximum preparation that can be provided in high school. To develop a Four Year Plan, students do two things: They decide what their plans are following graduation from high school. They may choose to go to work, join the military, attend a community college, attend a UC or CSU, or attend a private college, vocational school, or a school that is out-of-state. Each has different requirements. They choose the Career Pathway that best fits their personal and career goals. A Career Pathway is a group of similar occupations. The following seven Pathways are offered at LHS: Agriculture and the Environment; Art, Media, and Communications; Business/Technology; Consumer and Family; Health and Recreation; Industrial Engineering Technology; Professional and Governmental Services. After these two decisions have been made, students will select the classes they need to reach their goals. As students progress through high school they will have the opportunity to review and modify their goals with guidance from their parents and counselor. Throughout each school year, students will also have the opportunity to take advantage of many Career Pathway activities and events, such as Next Step speakers, Job Shadowing, College Night, college speakers, and field trips. The Next Step Program recognizes those students who have excelled in their Pathway choices. Honor Cords are awarded to seniors who have done well academically while participating in a wide variety of activities relating to their Pathway. The culmination of the Next Step Program is the Senior Exit Interview. At this time each senior is interviewed by two members of the community who help each student determine whether or not they have reached the goals in their Four Year Plan. Passing the Senior Exit Interview is a graduation requirement at LHS. 1
