Career Advising Policy
LPA and their Board views Career advising as empowering students in understanding their skills, interests, aptitudes, and barriers. This is in an effort to increase a student’s self-efficacy for their future education and career choices.
This policy on career advising is reviewed at least once every two years and made available to students. Parents, guardians, and custodians, local post-secondary institutions and district residents. This policy is posted in a prominent location on the School’s website.
The School will complete the following:
- We will provide grade-level examples that link students’ schoolwork to one or more career field by using Career Connections Learning Strategies offered by the Ohio Department Board of Education (ODE).
- Create a plan for career advising to students grades 6-8.
- Provide additional interventions and career advising for students who are identified as at risk of dropping out of school by using research based methods.
- Training for appropriate staff on how to advise students on career pathways, including the use of online tools on the OhioMeansJobs K-12 website.
- Implementing multiple, clear academic pathways students can use when they enter high school to earn a high school diploma.
- Educating students on courses in which students can earn both traditional academic and career-technical credit.
- Documentation of career advising for every student, parent/guardian/custodian, and schools the student may attend in the future.
- Support and prepare students for their transition from middle school to high school.
