College & Career Readiness

College Career ReadinessIron County School District is committed to increasing K-12 student performance and ensuring that our education system prepares ALL students for postsecondary education or today’s workplace. College and Career Readiness prepares students in reading, oral and writing communications, teamwork, critical thinking, problem solving, workplace relations, computer skills, mathematics and much more to be successful in any and all future endeavors.  In short, we are preparing students to look beyond filling their schedule with only the graduation requirements; they will be on a pathway to a career.    

 Being “college ready” means being prepared for any postsecondary education or training experience, including study at technical colleges or two and four-year institutions leading to a postsecondary credential (e.g.: a certificate, license, Associate’s, Bachelor’s degree or higher). 

 Being “career ready” means being prepared for a career not just a job. A career provides a family-sustaining wage and pathways to advancement and requires postsecondary training or education.  A job may be obtained with only a high school diploma, but offers no guarantee of advancement or mobility.

We will provide opportunities to all students to explore a pathway that is best suited for them.  Using tools available such as UtahFutures, Plan, Explorer and counselor-driven discussions every student can choose a career they will thrive in.  Whether they are in a classroom or job internship, we will be helping them on a Pathway to their careers.   

 Iron County School District is prepared to provide all students “Pathways” to success in their chosen career.  Regardless of their goals, we are providing our students career guidance and rigor in curriculum to meet the needs of our changing economy.
