To assist students with college planning, testing preparation, financial aid and scholarships, there is a Career Center at each of the district’s seven high schools. District high school guidance counselors and career center specialists help to highlight seniors and their achievements to various colleges in order to identify potential scholarship opportunities. In addition, each career center specialist maintains a scholarship database and the information is used to contact students who might be interested in a particular scholarship, remind students of important deadlines and schedule college visits.
