The Career Center offers many services for Discovery students to help them create their best plan for life after high school. Whether it is help with their graduation portfolio, scholarship applications for college, or inquiries on apprenticeships, we are committed to equipping our students for a successful future. Listed below are the areas we specialize in. Select a link to learn more. Please contact us if you have any questions.
With the passage of ESHB 2224, there are new requirements for the High School and Beyond Plan starting in 2017-18 for all students. The High School & Beyond Plan (HSBP) revolves around three questions: Who am I?, What can I become?, How do I become that? This plan is a graduation requirement that helps all students get the most out of high school and think about their future.. You will work with your school counselor, advisor and/or teachers to create your own individual plan, called a “personalized pathway”, and will revise your plan annually to adjust for changing interests or postsecondary plans (what you plan to do the year following graduation from high school). Your post high school goals may include four-year colleges or universities, two-year community or technical colleges, apprenticeship programs, industry standard certificate programs, military training, or on-the-job training. Visit Graduation Requirements for more information.
