By looking at the community and occupational clusters, students begin to evaluate their own interests, abilities, and values in relation to the career area they choose to investigate. At this level, students intensify their look at how school course choices are important for their future endeavors. Students learn how to set goals, with particular attention toward high school planning.

Involves all resources in the school, home, and community and allows students to focus on specific careers/occupations through simulated work place experiences, on-site observation, or exposure to role models through mentoring or job shadowing.

Students continue to develop an understanding and positive attitudes toward work, themselves, and society.

Career Pathways - Education With A Purpose!
Welcome to LISD's career pathways which is an education initiative designed to prepare students for a lifetime of success. Pathways allow students to achieve excellence by preparing them for secondary and postsecondary opportunities, career preparation and advancement, meaningful work, and active citizenship.

Career Pathways are designed to help students (and their parents) make wise education choices. It is based on the belief that the curricula of the 21st century should combine rigorous academics with relevant career education. When we integrate academic and technical education, students can see the “usefulness” of what they are learning. This will allow seamless transition from secondary to postsecondary opportunities.

What will you do? Where will you go? Who will support you? Will you continue your education? Will you work and go to school? If you go to school, what will your major be? These are all very important questions. In order to answer them, you will need to explore your interests and make informed decisions about your future. Perhaps the most important decision you make is the course you choose to follow after graduating from high school.

In the 8th grade you began the process of developing a personalized education plan through assessment and guided activities taken through the Career and Interest Inventory and Aptitude Test. Using your career interest and aptitudes, your parents, counselors, and teachers help you to develop a graduation plan which identifies a career cluster.
