Parents and students will have an opportunity to map a path to college and careers at the Elk Grove Unified School District’s first annual Map Your Future: K-12 Career Pathways Exposition from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, October 8 at Monterey Trail High School. The event is offered through a partnership between EGUSD, Elk Grove Chamber of Commerce and Elk Grove Economic Development Corporation.
“Research has shown that a key factor in a child’s college and career success is his or her engagement in the K-12 learning process,” said Steven M. Ladd, Ed.D., EGUSD superintendent. “Students – and our data – tell us a sense of belonging and an interest in what they are learning result in higher attendance and better academic performance. Participation in a career pathway is one way students can become involved in a rewarding, supportive, engaging learning community.”
