Career Ready: Personalized Pathways

Personalized pathways provide a way to intentionally plan high school course selection beginning in 8th grade. A personalized pathway provides a deliberate sequence of courses and a mixture of academic and technical high school courses to prepare students for post-secondary education and career success. They increase the relevance and impact of a student's high school education, improve graduation rates in high school and college, and focus on current demands in a global economy. Clover Park School District has identified approximately 20 different personalized pathways within 12 career clusters that are currently available to students. With careful planning, students are able to complete college entrance requirements and up to two personalized pathways. Program sequence through high school graduation are listed below.
