Mississippi and Rock River Regions Establishing District-Wide Pathway System

For the Making Opportunities Real for Everyone (MORE) in the Mississippi and Rock River Regions Leadership Community, pathway work continues in education, manufacturing, and agriculture. Interested partners meet monthly to discuss and report on implementation.

A new pathway system is being established so that all district students on any pathway will follow one means for reporting and storing data. The districts include River Bend, Morrison, Dixon, and Rock Falls. Marketing materials are being created along with a centralized pathway website. With a commitment to sustainability, plans are being made to create training videos for mentor teachers, club supervisors, counselors, etc. to be used when staff changes and new district staff become involved in pathway work.

Through all this work the goal remains the same: to help students explore careers, develop skills and knowledge regarding their chosen career, and gain real-life experience in their chosen field before high school graduation.
