Middle School students can learn about high school opportunities at Pathways to Success event
For middle school students, it can be hard to decide what classes to take once they enter high school. New this year, the Wichita Public Schools is offering the Pathways to Success event on Tuesday, September 20 from 5-7 p.m. at the Alvin Morris Administrative Center at 903 S. Edgemoor.
Students in grades 6-9 will learn about different opportunities that are offered to them in high school. They will hear from representatives who will talk about our career and technical education pathways, opportunities for students to earn college credit during high school, new programs to give students work-based learning experiences, and more.
Kelly Bielefeld, College and Career Readiness Executive Director, will be available to preview the Pathways to Success event on Thursday, September 15, at 9:30 a.m. at Northwest High School. Members of the media will be able to see the school’s Culinary Arts program and learn about the dozens of career and technical education pathways available to students.
The district’s mission is to prepare all students to achieve college, career and life readiness through an innovative and rigorous educational experience. The Pathways to Success event is one way to help prepare students to be Future Ready.
