COLLEGE & CAREER DATA DIVE



Although the Road Map Project region has made some improvements in college readiness, college enrollment numbers are not moving and completion rates remain low. In our region, 64 percent of students will enroll in college sometime before their mid-twenties, but less than a third of them will complete a degree or credential. 
THEME DAY RESOURCE SPOTLIGHT: 
CLASSROOM TO CAREER

Have students ever asked you, "Why do I need to learn this?" 

Tuesday, Oct. 9, is #ClassroomToCareer Day! This DiscoverU Theme Day is a chance to show students how what they're learning can be applied to a future career.  For example, if they are currently taking algebra, you might want to demonstrate how it is used in carpentry, architecture, or engineering. 

Even younger students can make connections between school and career readiness. One way to do that is share a book from the King County Library System's DiscoverU "Classroom To Career" Booklist! Stay tuned for KCLS Booklists for every Theme Day. 


DiscoverU encourages our community to come together and promote college and career exploration for the region's youth. Through fun activities in and out of school, students throughout Seattle and South King County will have opportunities to explore their futures. DiscoverU puts student interests at the center and helps connect their aspirations with the many pathways to get there.
