Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Pathway?

A pathway is a list of suggested courses for each of the six career clusters.

 

Do I have to choose a Pathway?

Yes.  In order to prepare you for post-secondary education and careers, the pathways are designed to guide you in understanding the course sequence and help you with course selection.    

 

What if I don’t know which Pathway to choose?

8th grade students will be taking a Career Interest Inventory that will help them choose a pathway.  Counselors will be meeting with students and parents to help guide them in selecting a path using the inventory results and input from both student and parent.

 

Can I change Pathways?

Yes.  Visit with your school counselor if you are interested in changing pathways.

 

Do I need to choose alternate classes when filling out my Course Request Form? 

YesBe careful in your choice of alternatives because it is very likely that one or more may be used in order to complete your registration. Classes sometimes are canceled due to lack of enrollment, limits on class size, and/or scheduling conflicts. This may cause you not to receive a course(s) that you select.
