Medical Lake High School College and Career Ready Program
Why? The intent of CCR is to:
**Washington State requires students to develop a High School and Beyond Plan that addresses how they will meet high school graduation requirements and their post-secondary intentions. A student’s plan, which is revised as he/she moves through high school, includes the necessary classes for a two or four-year postsecondary pathway, a technical college, an apprenticeship program, a certificate program, the workforce or military training.
Where and When?
What does this look like?
Students will be exposed to classroom lessons, group presentations and activities via a new software program called “Xello” (formerly Career Cruising). Students will have their own account, specific to their grade level, allowing them to take career interest inventories, build a resume, start an activity log, and map out a course plan for high school. They can also search various educational pathways, schools, financial aid options and much more.
Students will have the opportunity to earn a .25 elective credit each year (.5 credit in their senior year) of CCR through sufficient attendance, completion of various assignments and activities, and by facilitating their own Student-Led Conference in the spring. A student who successfully completes each year of CCR has the potential to earn 1.25 elective credit which is the equivalent of just over two full semesters.
Running Start Students
Running Start Students not in attendance during the designated CCR time will be assigned an advisor and will work with that advisor to complete their CCR requirements independently. This year, full-time Running Start juniors will work with Mrs. Wilbanks (Counselor) and full-time Running Start seniors will work with Mrs. Prewitt (Counselor).
