Industry Day is on October 22.
All 8th grade students in the SD of Janesville will be going to local companies and postsecondary institutions in an effort to provide students with firsthand exposure to potential careers. Most students will visit four sites, with the exception of a few that are headed to University of Wisconsin-Whitewater & Alliant Energy. Those students will have a unique experience.
The more we let our students know about, and experience, career pathways, the better positioned they are to know what course they should take during their four years of high school. We believe we must prepare students to be college, career, and community ready. As part of that, we believe it is important to provide hands-on, authentic experiences that provide students with awareness and skills needed for whatever future pathway they choose.
Company reps will introduce the students to their company, discuss job opportunities and academic requirements of those positions, give forward-looking thoughts on the industry, answer questions from the students and provide a tour of the facility.
