Park City School District’s CTE will host its second annual Combined Registration and Career Compass Event on Monday, March 4, from 5-7 p.m. at Park City High for students in grades 5-11 and their families.
Monday’s event is about providing information so students can progress through PCSD schools and refine their interests and begin developing a plan to focus and deepen their knowledge base and skill sets towards their plans for the next stage of life.
Set to the theme, “Come Find Your True North,” a compass illustrates the theme with the four cardinal directions representing Ecker Hill Middle, Treasure Mountain Junior High, and Park City High — each cardinal direction narrowing the focus as students proceed from school to school.
As students mature and progress in their career interests they should move from exploring to tactically engaging in classes, clubs, and experiences that will provide them a strategic advantage in whatever their goals are for the next stage in life.
CTE Director Danny Fisher said the end goal of this event is to start or support meaningful conversations with students, parents, teachers, counselors, etc. about how the culmination of our students’ educational experiences will “give them a strategic advantage as they choose a career and lifestyle that is right for them.”
The evening begins at 5 p.m. in the Lecture Hall with registration details. Seven breakout sessions will be held both at 5:30 and 6:15 p.m. Those sessions include:
– Health sciences: Intermountain Healthcare panel
– Information technology Earl Foote, CEO of Nexus IT Consultants
