op prep 2013CHRISTIAN COUNTY, Ky. (3/5/13) – Over the next few weeks, 8th and 10th grade students of Christian County Public Schools will participate in Operation Preparation. Operation Preparation is a joint incentive of the Kentucky Department of Education and the Department of Workforce Development.
 
Operation Preparation is a community-based volunteer advising effort to help increase the number of students college and career ready. According to the Center for Education and the Workforce, in the next 7-10 years, more than half the jobs in Kentucky and more than 60 percent of jobs nationwide will require postsecondary education (either a two year or four year degree). Most of the remaining jobs will help focus students on preparing for their future and becoming college/career ready.
 
All volunteers that have either committed or will commit to advising students during the week of Operation Preparation will be meeting with students in groups of 10-15 for 30 minutes. Students are placed into groups according to their Individual Learning Plans (ILPs), in which career interests of students are listed. Students range from interests groups of health/science, construction, transportation, education, agriculture and much more. The participating schools include: Christian County Middle, Hopkinsville Middle, North Drive Middle, Christian County High and Hopkinsville High School.
 
Volunteers of Operation Preparation are given a “session guide.” The session guide suggests to volunteers that conversation with students should revolve around the college and career ready process. Conversation with students will include volunteers sharing real-life work experiences with students, college experience and what it means to be “college and career ready.” In small groups it will be easier for volunteers to have discussion with students and the opportunity to answer questions during the 30 minute time frame.
 
Volunteers were recruited from the Partners in Education Program and also by announcements on local radio stations. A few vacancies for volunteers in the Science/Mathematics and Social Sciences fields remain to be scheduled for the week of Operation Preparation. If you are interested in fulfilling one of these vacancies, please call Heather Aubin, CCPS Communications and Community Education Director at (270) 887-7018.
