Career Focused Education

Rochester Community Schools believes that career planning at all grade levels is essential for the success of every student. Students are
introduced to the six Michigan Career Pathways, Career Cruising, and the Education Development Plan (EDP).

An EDP is an online electronic portfolio that documents each student's academic career by recording: standardized test scores, class schedules, extracurricular activities and events, career assessments and college research information. This portfolio is updated on an annual basis until graduation. Students can access their EDP from home or school and print out copies as desired.

EDP Fundamentals:

Career Pathways assists students to see the relationship between academic classes such as math and science and its significance in career preparation. These six pathways are clustered around careers with common areas of interests, skills and abilities, but are diverse in their training and educational requirements. To learn about the relevance of taking math, science, English and social studies classes and how they relate to various careers in each one of the Michigan Career Pathways, click on the link below:

Career Cruising is an online career guidance and planning system which begins in middle school. Students can take assessments and surveys about their interests and explore high school classes, training, or degrees needed for various career options. Students can access this tool from home or school.

Rochester Community Schools Career Options Day, April 11, 2012

Rochester Community Schools high school students and their parents from Adams, Rochester, Stoney Creek High School, Alternative Center for Education (ACE), and Rochester Adult Center for Education (RACE) attended:

Career Options Day on Wednesday, April 11, 2012 from 5:30-8:30 p.m. at Rochester High School's Mall.

The program encourages high school students to explore a variety of high-demand careers from representatives in that career along with educational training options, with the intent of better preparing themselves for fulfilling careers. Students used their soft skills: how to engage a conversation, how to answer and request information, how to meet people in a professional/ business environment. This program would not have been possible if it weren't for the 90+ participants who chose to spend the evening with our young people.
