Explain your vision for creating clear pathways..

A:

(related to TRANSITIONS above):

I would like to collaborate with a variety of stakeholders to develop on-line documents and videos in multiple languages to help families understand the following:

  • How to prepare students for each transition - from early childhood to elementary, from elementary to middle, from middle to high school, from high school to post-secondary.
  • What standards/learning targets are for students at each grade level, why students should meet those targets or when adaptations should be made.
  • How to get additional support for a child who has special needs either physically or mentally.
  • What resources are available in each region to support the academic, physical, social-emotional and cultural needs of students.
  • The wide variety of professions that are available, so students are able to begin to envision the many opportunities that are available beyond high school.
  • The many different kinds of post-high school opportunities available to students - 2/4-year and technical colleges, internships, apprenticeships, military - why students should select a particular path and what students need to do to qualify for each opportunity.
