Tribal Education is in partnership with Salish Kootenai College and Two Eagle River School on a US Department of Education funded project that includes, among other things, a focus on College and Career Readiness.
1/23/17 We have hired Jodi Hunter-Ivins and Michael Hewankorn as our new College and Career Readiness Coaches and we plan to bring them on Monday, January 30! Please join us in welcoming them!
UPDATE: 7/1/17 What is a College and Career Readiness Coach? The Career and Readiness Coach is a primary point of contact with a youth/student and young adult participant and others in the circle of influence. Career and College Readiness Coach will be the liaison between the CSKT Schools and CSKT Education Department. The Coaches will assist students in seeking educational and/or employment, as participants are in High School or graduating out of High School. In addition, the coaches will be delivering presentations throughout the reservation schools to K-12th grade students. Coaches encourage students and/or parents to set up a one-on-one meeting with one of our coaches
The Montana Office of Public Instruction has provided guidance on what college and career readiness means to them. It is available at http://opi.mt.gov/pdf/Superintendent/MCCRS/16OctMCCRS_Definition.pdf
We plan to develop our own working definition of college and career readiness and how it applies to students on the Flathead Reservation. Feel free to contact us with your thoughts!
