Career Pathways Charter School Monthly News September 2019

Back to School Orientation  

Teacher Leaders create a strong start this fall. 
We are enjoying a great first month of school thanks to our teacher leaders and their skillful planning.
  • New students learn from returning students about how our classes include student voice.
  • Carefully planned orientation activities are fostering team building. 
  • Project Based Learning has begun as teacher led and will move to student led when each student is ready.

Student Centered Learning: Growing, Improving, and Sharing

As a Minnesota public school we are held to the same standards as all other public schools in Minnesota.  These include academic achievement, attendance, and graduation rates. In addition, because we are a public charter school we also must meet specific requirements having to do with our programing and innovation. 

At Career Pathways we strive to provide a safe and supportive educational environment that includes community service, internships, and opportunities to earn trade certification and college credit while in school.

This Newsletter includes information about the above goals, our School Improvement Plan and our Strategies.  Please contact us if you have questions.

Credit Growth

Our second strategy is to increase credit growth.

Advisors are taking the month of September for Orientation to ensure that students understand school norms and the 3 kinds of learning we offer (Personalized, Experiential, and Blended).

To increase learning, teachers share curriculum maps and lesson plans in a drive that promotes alignment, strategies, and planning. 

Teachers are gathering baseline data so that tracking of credit growth and attendance can be ongoing in addition to quarterly report cards.  

Your student's teachers and advisors lead this strategy.

Do you have a friend who is looking for a school like ours? They can enroll now. 
Our first strategy is to increase overall scores in the Hope Survey (indicator areas are Engagement, Autonomy, Belongingness, Goal Orientation, and Academic Press).

The survey collects feelings and ideas about a student's ability to set and move toward their goals. It helps teachers better understand the obstacles students face. We use this information to create a school environment that is student centered and supports student needs. 

Talk to your student's advisor with specific questions about the survey.

College and Career

Our third strategy is to increase students' preparedness for college and careers. 

Advisors are refining our graduation plans, developing a Continual Learning Plan to outline the steps to graduation, and broaden our internship programs. 

Contact Ms. Liz or Ms. Jo about career training and internship options.

Our Innovation

At Career Pathways we offer 3 kinds of learning, 

  1. PERSONALIZED: Individualized Learning, Graduation Plans, and PSEO;
  2. EXPERIENTIAL: Hands On, Internships, and Work Credit;
  3. BLENDED: 24/7 Learning Options.
Our highly qualified teachers focus on the needs and interests of each student.
In remembrance of Hamza Ahmed,
our friend and student.
