This page introduces you to WRSD Pathways, a program that connections your career interests to your academic path.

What is Pathways?

WRSD wants all students to invest in their future, in learning, and in today. Our hope is for the students to begin thinking of the future earlier, rather than when they have already graduated. This is why we've created Pathways. Watch this video to learn more.

My Pathway for Students

Pathways provide a crosswalk between career opportunities and completion options. Through the Pathway process students learn more about themselves and their future options. They explore their interests and aptitudes and learn about a multitude of careers. Whether a student leaving WRHS Enrolls, Enlists, or is Employed we want to ensure they are prepared.

Pathways will help redesign the high school experience. Student Pathways will drive the high school Program of Studies. Courses offered can be geared toward supporting student choices. Pathways will expose opportunities to students at younger ages. WRSD can plan backward to determine appropriate activities, field trips, and other learning experiences that will inspire students. They will be readier to engage in the Pathway process upon entering high school over time.
