Operation Preparation

Two weeks ago I highlighted ECS's Mock Interview night.  This week Royal Spring Middle School had a very similar event called Operation Preparation.   Trained volunteer community advisors met one-on-one with  students on Wednesday of this week. The community advisor used the student’s Individual Learning Plan or ILP (including career interest inventory and EXPLORE results) to discuss the student’s:
  • career aspirations, required education/training and workforce skills
  • whether the student is on target to meet their goals
  • whether the student is taking the courses recommended to prepare them for a successful future

Royal Spring Middle School was recently recognized as a
"School to Watch", one of the first schools in Central Kentucky to receive this prestigious honor.  Commitments to programs such as Operation Preparation  is just one small reason why. 

MegAnn Leigh in the wrong seat - just like when she was in High School

Counselor Angela Fraley and Carmen Wallin arranged for 26 local business leaders to meet with students at RSMS.  This is a great opportunity for our students to practice "soft skills"  and for local community leaders to work with our students.

The last stop for students is to the "College Info Road Show" RV.  This is a great chance for our 8th Grade students to realize that college is within reach.
