Showing way to college, careers

WHAT TO DO after high school? The GGUSD has a partnership with community college counselors to help explore the possibilities of college and career (Shutterstock).

Not every intermediate and high school student knows a lot about college opportunities or about the range of choices in post-secondary education and career paths.

To that end, one of the items on the agenda for Tuesday night’s meeting of the Garden Grove Unified School District’s Board of Education meeting is renewal of a partnership agreement with the Foundation for California Community Colleges through their California Guidance Initiative project.

The CGI provides each student in grades six through 12 college and career guidance units to learn about using online planning tools as they prepare for what they might do after graduating from high school.

Students can get monthly lessons with their counselors to help develop short- and long-term plans for their future. Funding will come from College and Career Readiness grant funds. The partnership has been in place since the 2016-17 school year.

Also on the agenda is a presentation on employee recognition by Jason Bevacqua, assistant superintendent of personnel services.

The meeting will be held via teleconference with a closed session at 6 p.m. and the regular board meeting at 7 p.m.

GGUSD is a K-12 system serving most of Garden Grove and portions of Anaheim, Cypress, Fountain Valley, Santa Ana, Stanton and Westminster.
