BENTON, Ky. (3/16/13) – Operation Preparation is a joint effort of the Kentucky Department of Education and the Department of Workforce Development and provides a powerful opportunity for schools, students, parents and communities to collaborate in the process of effective advising and focus attention on the importance of planning for college and/or career.
During March 2013, trained volunteer community advisors will meet one-on-one with every 8th- and 10th-grade student. The community advisor will use the student’s Individual Learning Plan or ILP (including career interest inventory and EXPLORE/PLAN results) to discuss the student’s:
• career aspirations, required education/training and workforce skills
• whether the student is on target to meet their goals
• whether the student is taking the courses recommended to prepare them for a successful future
It is anticipated that each session will take about 20 minutes.
The meeting is designed to provide both information and inspiration for the student to achieve college/career-readiness.
