Thank you for your attention to this matter.
Did You Know?
Children of parents who talk with their teens regularly about drugs are 42% less likely to use drugs than those who’s parents do not talk with them. Yet, only a quarter of teens report having parents who talk with them about drugs.
Why Pathways? The Florida Legislature passed Senate Bill 1076, which requires every 8th grade student in Florida to complete an internet based, individualized, career plan before moving on to high school.
What is individualized? Each student will have a DIFFERENT plan based on their individual interest and natural talents and skills.
What are they exploring? They will explore careers, colleges, branches of the military, job certifications, and other vocational options. The teacher, Ms. Clevenger, will meet with each student and emphasize careers that are in HIGH DEMAND.
Please look for a flyer from your child’s teacher informing you of the date and time of the “Back to School” night. We look forward to seeing all silver team parents. Refreshments will be served.
The Silver Team
Ms. Smart, Ms. Sneeringer, Ms. Richerson, and Ms. Bryant
