The state of Michigan requires that all Students complete an education development plan. The goal of this plan is to help students think about their future and work on goal setting for what they will be doing after they graduate. WAY Michigan uses the Career Cruising program as our education development plan. Our teacher Mrs. Kimberly Iorillo has created a Career Cruising project for students to complete the work necessary for the plan and earn credit in Hero. Please work with your student(s) to learn about their goals and dreams so that we can help make them a reality.
Fall Count Day is Wednesday, October 2nd. Please make sure your student logins in and completes a submission in a project for each course on their learning plan. Click and learn more.
