Seventh-grade students in the Findlay City School District will learn more about potential careers this year. The Courier reports a nine-week class called “career exploration” will talk about types of careers, what is needed to pursue a job in that career path, and what employers look for. The class is a state requirement.
Rich Steiner is the director of secondary instruction for the district. He says he believes the class will “give rationale for why school is important.” Steiner said that even though seventh-graders may not know what they want to do, it gives them some ideas. He added the goal is for the class to “trigger ideas for what they’re good at by showing them a whole array of careers they haven’t even thought about before.”
