I was delighted to participate with over 300 students, parents, educators, government, and community members in today’s Symposium.  The Career Pathways Concept Model is intended to support the growth and success for every student through community partnerships.  The Model helps students build awareness, understanding, and commitment to career pathways.  Throughout their kindergarten to grade 12 journey, the Model will help students discover for themselves their interests, opportunities, and plans to achieve their goals. I`m excited that the Pathways Model provides a vision for involving parents and community in and outside our classrooms to share their wisdom and experiences to help students shape their futures.  These are early days and I look forward to sharing information as the Concept develops.
