"We are grateful to CESA 6 for the generous $1000 micro-grant. This funding will transform our Academic and Career Planning portion of our website. Our Course Program Guide, a historically downloadable document, will transform into interactive pages," said Cravy. "Additionally, the ACP portion of our website will provide more information about how our classes align with career pathways, salaries, and current demand in the marketplace for certain positions."

Other website improvements include clearly outlining graduation requirements related to college and career exploration, which will include links to additional information and resources, and work and community-based learning opportunities will be provided.

"Best of all, the grant will be used to hire a student to do the data entry and design of each of these pieces into our website鈥檚 portal as a summer job," said Cravy. "It鈥檚 a big win for us, and we appreciate CESA 6 for making it happen!"
