The Career Readiness Program encourages students to explore career interests while applying their leadership skills and knowledge to real world situations. Students in grades 8-12 complete requirements that enhance the curriculum in the classroom and give them the opportunity to explore careers for post-secondary life. LPS students will connect with the local community and showcase their leadership skills through mentoring, job shadowing, internships, and practicums.

  • Welcome to our 2023-2024 school year! We are very excited about the amazing year the students and staff are going to have and look forward to seeing the young leaders that they become! 


    Last school year, our Career Readiness Program was introduced to the class of 2025 10th graders with a Defense of Learning presentation at the end of the year where students presented artifacts from their courses and defended their learning-what they did, how they could improve, and how it will help them after they graduate. This year, we are expanding the graduation requirements. 


    For the 2023-2024 school year, all students 8th-11th grade must complete their grade level Career Readiness requirements. 


    *The class of 2024 is exempt from the new graduation requirements. 


    The program consists of three main components: Job Shadow/Internship, Defense of Learning, and a Portfolio. Below is the Quick Links Page for Career Readiness. Students will work in their Leadership classes as well as with the Career Readiness Coordinator to ensure that the requirements are met.

    We want to continue to have a great working relationship with our LPS families and know that our collective goal is to see our students succeed in school and become future ready. If you or your business would like to help our students have opportunities throughout the year, please complete and submit this Google form and the Career Readiness Coordinator will get with you about your availability. 

    Things we are looking for: Job Shadow places, Career Fair, Guest Speakers, Job Tours, Donations/Sponsorships. Our students would love your participation!
