College and Career Readiness Plan
What used to be known as an SEOP (Student Education Occupation Plan) is now referred to as a CCRP (College and Career Readiness Plan). This plan is introduced in 7th grade and is used to help plan and record classes students take throughout high school. During a student’s 8th grade year, the student and their parents will be invited to meet with a counselor to determine a four year plan, discuss interests and abilities and plan for the future.
CTE Pathways are programs of study that prepare students for future careers. Students who focus on a Pathway develop the skills necessary for entry into well-paid careers with high potential for rapid financial growth, increased levels of responsibility, and a high degree of personal satisfaction. There are eight pathways students can choose from: Family & Consumer Sciences, Health Sciences, Skilled & Technical Sciences, Marketing, Information Technology, Business, Agriculture, and Technology & Engineering. The counselors at Mapleton Junior High have set a goal to have every student choose at least one pathway they would like to pursue by the end of the school year.
