College & Career Readiness

College and Career Readiness (CCR) meetings

You’ve probably wondered what a CCR is, especially if you’re the parent of an 8th or 9th grade student and got an invitation to a meeting with me.  These meetings give your student, you, and me the opportunity to talk about your student’s current progress in school, any career interests he or she may have, and plans for high school and beyond.  I meet with every 8th and 9th grade student yearly.  These meetings are scheduled during the following months:

  • 9th grade- January and February.  This is the time when high schools are working on their registration for next year. Syracuse High and Clearfield High both give me registration materials.  When I get it I pass the information on to students who will be attending there.
  • 8th grade- March and April.  This is the time that we are doing our scheduling for next year.  It gives us the opportunity to talk about classes your student wants to take next year.
