Ohio Means Success
Please explore “www.ohiomeanssuccess.org” a new website launched this month by the Ohio Board of Regents. This website showcases college and career planning with subsections on finding a career, preparing for college, and paying for college, as well as links to all Ohio’s college websites. It is not only for students, but also for parents and families, as well as for educators. You will want to register so that you may chart your path to college and career with an individualized “Roadmap”. By registering, you will be able to save in your “backpack” the most helpful resources that you find. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Cheryl Miller, school counselor, at email@example.com or by telephone--272-3213, ext. 1026.
Interested in a job in the Skilled Trades?
Not everyone wants to go on to school full time immediately after high school. Many skilled trades occupations offer apprenticeship programs where you learn a trade as you work and attend classes. Generally, you must be 18 and have a high school diploma to begin such apprenticeships. These areas are not necessarily easy, and some even require chemistry and physics in high school! They are in high demand right now, and Toledo has a training center for these high-paying important jobs. I have attached the presentation, and here are some websites that you may want to
explore if interested.
