One of our biggest challenges was keeping students on pace and supporting them through their high school career. We created "success coaches" as another hat our teachers wear, and they help to make sure that students are succeeding and are on track to graduate. Another thing we've found that really works is to have very clear communication and protocols for students and parents at the onset. We have a great, week-long orientation for students and parents that sets expectations, explains processes, and lets everyone get to know each other.
One piece of advice in three parts: throw away the traditional ideas of what a school is, have a very defined program with clear protocols, and be flexible and ready for change.
Career Path High is high school reimagined. A unique Early College model located in Kaysville, Utah, Career Path High was designed as a blended learning flex model. The school opened in 2012 with the intent to empower high school students over their own pathway through two key approaches: (1) personalize student learning by using a flexible learning environment paired with technology and (2) prepare students for a career and higher education by partnering with Davis Applied Technology College (DATC). Students at Career Path High School graduate with not only a high school diploma, but also a Career and Technical Certification from DATC.The goal is 100% student placement either in the workforce, an institution of higher education, or continuation in an Applied Technology College program. Both the high school and college-level curricula are competency-based to ensure student mastery in their fields of study. Career Path High students leave their high school experience prepared for both career and/or additional post-secondary pursuits.
