Open House and Informational Sessions

The Signature Programs provide Real World Learning opportunities for students as outlined in the district’s Strategic Plan. Real World Learning opportunities prepare students for college and careers. Real World Learning is the connection between classroom learning experiences and the application of knowledge and skills in a realistic setting with guidance and mentoring of business and industry partners. Together, we are equipping our learners and communities to thrive in a rapidly changing, increasingly connected and complex world.
