Middle School Career Guidance

Middle School Career GuidanceIn middle schools, DPS encourages students to explore careers and begin planning for their own careers.  Career Development Coordinators and middle school teachers work with students as they explore careers.

 

Students are encouraged and guided through the process of utilizing the various components of the Futures for Kids (www.f4k.org) Website.  Through this site, students take an online career interest survey to better direct them as they plan their high school course selections.  Students can read about careers and see video clips as well as sign on for an online mentor who has been screened by F4K.  Parents, too, can work with their children in career guidance by using the site’s tools.

 

Middle School Areas of Focus:

  • Engineering and Design
  • Computer Skills and Applications
  • Biotechnology
