During the exploration stage, students will begin to narrow down their options to find and choose pathways that fit them best.


What do I want to do? Where do I want to go?

Explore career pathways and education opportunities. This stage includes the following topics.

Career Exploration
All L-C students will have opportunities to participate in career-based events at various grade levels such as career fairs, job shadowing, and field trips. It is important for students to have opportunities to explore careers in various pathways. Using Career Cruising, students will have access to the local labor market statistics as well as the 16 career clusters.

World of Work and Labor Market

Careers on Wheels

Each spring the Intermediate School works with local businesses to organize a fun day for Spartan students to learn about different occupations and career paths. Local professionals bring company vehicles or equipment to showcase for students, and students get the opportunity to speak with employees and business owners.

The district is very appreciative of the efforts local businesses put into this event. Careers on Wheels provides an excellent opportunity for students to learn and get excited about the possibilities for their futures, and it wouldn't be possible without the tremendous support of our community!
