High School and Beyond: A Planning Guide for Parents, Students, and Staff.
Tacoma School District 10, WA.
This planning guide was written to assist Tacoma (Washington) public school students, working with parents and staff, in developing their career and educational goals. It was designed to be used by high school students in assessing their interests, attitudes, motivation, and awareness to implement a high school educational plan and post-high school direction. The section on planning for high school discusses these areas: making decisions; planning for high school; graduation requirements and suggested course schedules; suggested 9th through 12th grade schedules for students in vocational or college preparatory programs; helpful information regarding registration for grades 10 through 12; recommended pre-college curriculum; things to check for in grades 9, 10, 11, and 12; and testing. A section on career planning for vocational education students looks at vocational courses and programs available during high school and vocational opportunities after high school. A section on career planning for college-bound students discusses things to consider in choosing a college and examines college applications, financial aid, and scholarships. Also included are a list of relevant resources, a chart of formal training after high school, an educational plan sheet, a student information and enrollment form, and a curriculum offerings/course guide.
