Future Ready Schools® (FRS) is pleased to offer Pathway2Careers™ (P2C) Labor Market Navigator to help innovative educators ensure that each student graduates from high school with the agency, passion, and skills to be a productive, successful, and responsible citizen.
One of the most important responsibilities of a school system is to ensure students graduate with a solid plan for post-secondary success. This includes an understanding of their passions, aptitudes, and opportunities in today’s workforce. Through this free resource, educators will advance evidence-based local policies to create rigorous, engaging and successful student-centered learning environments.
Education leaders must also close the equity gap. It is an urgent economic, social, and moral imperative for our nation’s future success. When educators make data-informed decisions based on their regional needs, we will start to systematically address the equity gap in education. This tool can be used to identify areas of inequity and create multiple pathways for student success. When analyzed with an equity lens, this data can provide valuable information to create strategies to all populations of students better.
The P2C Labor Market Navigator is a free tool that connects economic development data to education policy for strategic programming in just a few simple clicks. It helps district and school leaders:
- strengthen CTE programs
- establish new community partnerships
- provide personalized pathways for students to explore their passions
- bridge the gap between education and workforce policy
- offer more relevant coursework aligned to real-world job opportunities
- conduct your Perkins V Comprehensive Local Needs Assessment (CLNA)
The well-being, vitality, and productivity of a generation of America’s students are at stake – we owe it to them to get this right. This tool can help.
