Goal 2: Support an Atmosphere That Promotes 21st Century Citizenship for All

  • College, Career, and Civic Readiness

    Definition:  College, Career, and Civic Readiness encompasses competency in diverse communication strategies and a broad range of cognitive, social, emotional, creative, and civic skills. P.V.M. High School provides a Career Center through which the District offers career fairs, job shadowing, internships, or work- based learning opportunities, mentors, and guest speakers. 

    Central Square’s Theory of Action:  When students are provided with the opportunity to develop the appropriate competencies, and they are afforded the opportunity to explore a variety of career pathways, they will display readiness for their intended pathways.
