 Career Awareness and Exploration

Elementary and Middle School Guidance and Tracking Documents

House Bill 713 mandates a minimum course of study in career education in grades K-12. To support teachers in fulfilling these requirements, the grade specific career awareness activities listed as an indicator on the College and Career Ready Performance Index have been developed to assist students with career awareness. Making successful transitions into satisfying college and career ready options are fundamental tasks for school counselors, teachers, administrators, and advisors. Social skills and the development of workforce readiness behaviors are crucial in career development.
Below are the grade-specific required career activities.

Grade 1 (Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources; Transportation, Distribution, and Logistics; Law, Public Safety, Corrections, and Security)
Grade 2 (Arts, A/V Technology, and Communications; Health Science; Education and Training)
Grade 3 (Hospitality and Tourism; Human Services; Energy)
