What does your child want to do when he or she grows up? Talking about fun jobs and careers helps get young people excited about school. They're more likely to take school seriously and to work hard if they have a goal and a dream!
Encourage your student to have a plan for continuing his or her education after high school. A high-school diploma just isn't enough to get a good job anymore.
Our schools are focused on helping every young person get ready for college or a career. Work with your child's school counselor and teachers to make sure your child is planning ahead!
