August 2012



Dear Parents and Students;


This Career and Educational Planning Guide is intended to assist students as they make plans for a
career that will lead to a rewarding and enjoyable future. We urge students and parents to work with the
school faculty to review the information in this book in preparation for creating the students’ personal
plan of study. Each year you will annually revisit the student’s personal plan of study. The personal plan
of study is the student’s unique plan of study which outlines courses that align with future education and
career goals. When students see the relevancy of high school course work to what they aspire to in their
future, they are more apt to take school more seriously and enroll in more rigorous courses. Remember
course selection is very important and schedule changes can be very difficult.

Parent, please familiarize yourself with the abundance of information in this book and actively
participate with your school and student in creating and reviewing your child’s personal plan of study.
Students rank parents as the most influential people in their lives. Challenge your students to set high
standards, select courses and school activities which directly help them achieve personal and career
goals, work hard to achieve these goals and attend classes daily. Embrace the power of your influence
and genuinely engage in educational pursuits with your child(ren).

We look forward to partnering with you for a successful year. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if we
can be of assistance.


Sincerely,



Laura McKay Cooke
Counselor

The high school administration realizes that an effective educational program is one that provides
opportunities for student learning both within the classroom and beyond the traditional classroom and
school day. These expanded opportunities are viewed as educational options to supplement the
regular program.

A+ Schools Program
The Lincoln R-II A+ Schools Program strives to ensure that students are prepared for and successful in life
beyond high school. The A+ Schools Program provides students with continuous, progressive career
information throughout the students’ years in the Lincoln R-II School District. The program focuses on ensuring
students have course offerings that are rigorous and relevant to the world outside the classroom that will better
prepare them for their paths after high school.
For Additional Information about the A+ Schools Program contact the A+ coordinator in your
School or the Department of Higher Education website (www.dhe.mo.gov).


Dual Credit

Dual Enrollment
Please see your counselor for a Dual Enrollment Procedures handout and a Lincoln R-II School District-Central
Methodist University or State Fair Community College Dual Enrollment Approval Form. There are specific
procedures for how dual enrollment courses affect GPA, graduation requirements, transcripts, and
weightedness. The approval form must be signed by student, parent, and guidance counselor prior to
enrollment. Seniors who are enrolled in enough classes to meet graduation requirements may also enroll in an
accredited college or licensed career center. Dual enrollment credit does not become a part of the high school
transcript unless it qualifies for high school credit under the terms of the agreement with the college.

Purpose of Career Paths and Career Clusters


Career Paths
Career paths are clusters of occupations/careers grouped according to participants’ interests and talents or skills.
All paths include a variety of occupations that require different levels of education and training. Thus, career
paths provide a plan for all students, whatever their interests, abilities, talents, or desired levels of education.
Selecting a career path provides a student with an area of FOCUS, along with FLEXIBILITY and a VARIETY
of ideas to pursue. The focus of career paths is on helping students choose a career path, not a specific
occupation. Selecting a career path is not a lifelong commitment; it is a place to begin focusing one’s energies.
As students take different courses and learn more about themselves and careers, they will probably change
career paths. Students who understand the career paths concept will be aware that there are a variety of other
related possibilities if the first path no longer fits them. If different career paths become more interesting, the
students can reevaluate plans, make appropriate decisions, and revise their high school plans as necessary.

Benefits
Deciding on a career path can assist you in exploring your interests and preparing for your future. The intent is
not for you to decide on a specific occupation for the rest of your life, but to select a career path into which you
can begin directing your energies. Identifying a career path can help you in selecting school courses, activities,
and part-time employment. It can also help guide your participation in job shadowing, career exploration and
internships. A career path choice is not a permanent commitment. As you have new experiences, you learn new
things about yourself and may decide to change career paths. If you decide on a different career path to explore,
you should discuss it with your counselor and adjust your future course selections in accordance with your new
career exploration.

Career Exploration Assessments
LINCOLN R-II HIGH SCHOOL students complete career exploration assessments starting in the 8th grade.
This is a way the student can identify an initial career path choice. Counselors will then use this information to
assist students in making course selections and developing a five-year plan. The PLAN test is administered in
the 10th grade. It provides an inventory that will indicate which career clusters interest the student. This will
help the student update his/her personal plan of study and career path.

CHOOSING A CAREER PATH OR CLUSTER
1. Identify your interests, abilities, and talents.
2. Identify the career path or cluster that relates to your interests, abilities, and talents.
3. Explore occupations in those career paths or clusters.
4. Decide how much education you want to receive after high school.
5. Develop a personal plan of study by selecting courses and co-curricular activities that relate to your career
educational and career goal.
6. If undecided regarding a career path or cluster, choose courses from different career areas to give you a better
idea of your interests.ATHS

         goals.



    4. Personal Plan of Study (PPOS): A student’s scope and sequence of coursework and related activities based
         upon their chosen Career Path or Career Cluster and their educational goals. Initiated in the eighth grade, it is
         designed to insure a successful post-secondary transition. The key component of the Individual Planning process.


    5.   Program of Study (POS): Secondary-to-postsecondary sequences of academic and career education
         coursework, along with additional learning opportunities, that lead students to attain a postsecondary degree or

             a. Process: Missouri currently uses a 10 step process for the development of Programs of Study that is
                  aligned with federal guidelines which includes creation of POS templates and secondary/post-secondary

             b. Template: The model or form developed by schools that lists courses, occupations and additional
                  learning opportunities to help students develop their personal plan of study. The completion of the POS

“What do you want to do after high school?” That is a question that is asked of our students a multitude of times
over the course of their public school education. It’s a question that is not easily answered, due to the enormous
number of possible post-secondary alternatives that are currently available to our students. Technological
advances and global competition have transformed the nature of both education and work. Tomorrow’s jobs
will require more knowledge and training, highly developed 21st Century Skills, technological skills, and more
flexible workers than ever before. Our students need to be prepared for, and informed of, the reality of several
job and career changes over the course of their lifetimes. They need to understand that they will have to
continually update their knowledge and skills, which may require additional training and/or education.

The Lincoln R-II School District offers a wide array of courses and experiences to its students. As students
review course offerings and activities, we hope to guide them in choosing coursework and experiences that are
relevant to their future goals.

In planning for post-secondary goals, students should start with examining where their own interests and talents
lie. This can be accomplished in many different ways within the school district; researching middle and high
school classes of interest, taking interest and skill inventories, participating in career fairs offered, and taking
advantage of the many extra-curricular and enrichment activities available. The school district uses the Missouri
Connections online program (www.missouriconnections.org) for interest assessments and to explore the variety
of options students have beyond high school.

Using the results of career assessments students create their personal plan of study for their high school years
and beyond. School counselors, teachers and other district personnel, are available to guide students and parents
in this important planning process. The planning process is critical to not only meeting graduation requirements,
but also to taking the coursework that will ultimately lead to a successful post-secondary transition.

The following program of study templates, serve as a guide, along with other career planning materials, to help
students develop their personal plans of study. Courses listed within these program of study templates are
recommended coursework only and should be individualized to meet each learner’s educational and career
goals.

Assessments
Standardized tests are designed to give a common measure of students' performance. They help compare an individual's performance with the
performance of a group of students from a given class, school, or school system. Since large numbers of students throughout the country take the same
test, "standards" can be developed to show whether school programs are succeeding and how students are performing. Standardized achievement tests
measure how much students have already learned about school subjects such as reading, math, language skills, spelling, or science. On the other hand,
standardized aptitude tests measure your students' ability to learn in school. They measure verbal ability, mechanical ability, creativity, clerical ability,
or abstract reasoning.

EXPLORE
EXPLORE is an achievement test and interest survey that measures performance in math, English, reading and science reasoning, plus provides
information about career interests. This is the entry point into ACT’s Educational Planning and Assessment System, and is followed by the PLAN and
the ACT. Taking this assessment in the ninth grade helps students explore a broad range of options for their futures including planning high school
courses, preparing for the ACT, and choosing a career path.

PLAN (Preliminary American College Testing Program)
PLAN is a two-hour version of the ACT given in the fall to all Sophomores. The PLAN provides practice for the ACT. It includes tests in English,
mathematics, reading, and science reasoning. The test also provides a career interest inventory. It is a good tool for sophomores to use as they start
planning for their post-secondary college and career options.

PSAT/NMSQT (Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test)
The PSAT/NMSQT measures verbal and mathematics reasoning skills important for academic success in college. It serves three purposes: gives the
student practice for the SAT I; is the first step in qualifying for scholarships sponsored by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation and other
scholarship programs; gives the student the opportunity to participate in the Student Search Service. This test is taken in the junior year for NMSQT
qualification.

ASVAB (The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery)
The ASVAB measures students’ strengths and potential for future success. The ASVAB also provides career information for various civilian and
military occupations and is an indicator for success in future endeavors including college, vocational school, or a military career.

ACT (American College Testing Program)
The ACT is a battery of four examinations in English, math, reading, and science reasoning, each of which yield separate scores measuring developed
abilities. The test is required by many colleges as part of the application process for admission.


                                                                                                                                                           116
