5 2 PATHWAYS: Connecting Beyond the Classroom Don t ask me what I want to be until you show me what there is to be. Dear Students, As you look into the future and begin thinking about a career, you probably have more questions than answers. Which professions match your skills and interests? How can you learn more about particular fields? Which high school courses best prepare you for the profession you choose? Fortunately, there are many sources of answers to your career-planning questions. As you begin to identify your interests and abilities, your teachers and counselors can recommend an appropriate educational plan. The AAPS Student Services Guide can provide detailed information about specific courses. As you progress in your planning, work with your counselor and the Career Center for career and college resources. The following Career Pathway information is an excellent tool for planning and decision making. Based on the model used by the Michigan Career Preparation System, the guide charts six career paths and describes the high school courses that lead to the career destination you choose. We urge you to use specific course information in the Student Services Guide and the Recommended/Related Electives from the Career Pathway pages to individualize your four-year plan. Many of the career paths look similar in the selection of courses for 9 th and 10 th grade, and changes from one pathway to another may be necessary as experiences develop and interests change. We also encourage you to select courses that will academically challenge you and spark your interest. Take advantage of the many resources and opportunities outlined in this guide. Best wishes for a successful school experience. Robert Allen Superintendent Ann Arbor Public Schools Arts and Communication Business, Management, Marketing and Technology Engineering/Manufacturing and Industrial Technology Health Sciences Human Services Environmental Science

6 PATHWAYS: Connecting Beyond the Classroom RESOURCES OPPORTUNITIES/REQUIREMENTS Counselors can direct you to a wealth of information, references, and resource material. They are also skilled in counseling for decision-making and exploring career options. Teachers, Media Specialists, Teacher Consultants and Job Placement Coordinators are valuable resources for students. Other parents, friends, and co-workers can share experiences and information to help you select a career path. Career Cruising, a comprehensive career development program, is available on-line in to assist you with career awareness and planning, including training options and information on colleges and universities. Informational programs are held throughout the year at your high school, at local colleges, and at technical schools. World Wide Web is available for all areas of career exploration. See your counselor, teachers, media specialists or career resource center for lists of current web sites. EDP Michigan High School Guidance Curriculum requires every student to do an Educated Development Plan. ACT and/or SAT are tests required for college entrance. Most colleges in Michigan require ACT or SAT and juniors are encouraged to take them in the spring. The ACT is also the qualifying test for the Michigan Competitive Scholarship Program. Plan is a sophomore version of the ACT. Advanced Placement, sponsored by the College Board, provides examinations each spring. If the student scores well enough on the exam, he or she may earn college credit. Articulation Agreements with other institutions of higher education are available in career and technical education classes. This means that upon successful completion of the class requirements, college credit may be earned for this high school class. Contact your Cooperative Education Office (COE) or counselor for more information. Career Assessment Opportunities are available through the counselors, media center, teachers, and teacher consultants. Students explore their interests and abilities. Community Service can provide important social and employment skills which are recognized by potential employers. The completion of the EDP includes a career assessment. Students can find opportunities through a variety of school courses and organizations. Testing Out is offered to students for any AAPS high school courses, with the exception of physical education. Community Resource Contracts allow students to earn credit in a variety of community settings. Dual Enrollment is a program where students can take college classes and receive both high school and college credit for qualifying upperclassmen. See your counselor for specific details. Job Shadowing is provided in cooperation with local businesses. Job shadowing is a short-term experience arranged through a cooperative education director or school counselor. It provides an opportunity to explore a career of the student s choice. PSAT/NMSQT is a practice test for the SAT offered by the College Board in October of the junior year. It is also the qualifying test for the National Merit Scholarship Program. Registration is in late September at the Main Office. Work Experience is paid work experience for credit.

Blended classes: The class is a blend of face-to-face classroom instruction and online instruction. Students attend the face-to-face section during scheduled class time and work both with the instructor both in person and in the virtual environment. Note about math courses: - The online and blended math courses are self-paced and use mastery learning instructional and assessment methods. Using web-based intelligent software, students receive math explanations and practice problems from the course objectives. They are given periodic assessments where they demonstrate mastery. The face-to-face, direct instruction uses a holistic approach where students can see where math objectives fit into the larger picture. - The 100% online class is most successful with students who very confident in their math skills and wish to advance a level in math by completing a full-year course in one semester or during the summer. - The blended class can be successful with students who have difficulties performing well on tests even though they attend class and complete homework assignments. The weekly cumulative assessments provide needed memory and math skill practice. 21. WAIVERS In order to maintain rigorous academic standards while assuring responsiveness to the needs of students for flexibility in meeting Ann Arbor s curricular requirements, the Ann Arbor Board of Education affirms its support for a process to review and grant waivers from the required curriculum in the middle and high schools.

The Ann Arbor Comprehensive Guidance and Counseling Program assures that all students will acquire and demonstrate competencies in the areas of knowledge of self and others, educational planning, and career exploration and development. Mastery of the outcomes of the Ann Arbor Comprehensive Guidance and Counseling Program will empower students to learn to learn, learn to work and learn to live over a lifetime. The Ann Arbor Comprehensive Guidance and Counseling Program follows the standards of the Michigan Comprehensive Guidance and Counseling Program and the American School Counselor Association. High School Program Goals: At the high school level, the Comprehensive Guidance Program emphasizes assisting students as they face increasingly important decisions about their futures. The professional school counselor is a certified/licensed educator trained in school counseling with specific qualifications and skills to address all students academic, personal/social and career development needs. The professional school counselor collaborates with students, parents, teachers, administrators, student services personnel, and support staff to develop solutions to enhance student achievement. All activities included in our school counseling program fit into one of the four components of the Ann Arbor Comprehensive Guidance and Counseling Program. The Guidance Curriculum component provides a vehicle to systematically deliver knowledge and skills to every student through classroom guidance activities.
