Student Pathways to Success presents four recommendations on improving student achievement in all Missouri public schools. These recommendations are a focus on school career guidance and counseling, focus on rigor, relevance, and relationships in school curriculum, focus on student transitions and focus on high quality professional development. This information can be found on the Division of Career Education webpage at http://dese.mo.gov/divcareered/ under the heading White Paper: Student Pathways to Success.

"What's The Plan? Helping Students Explore Their Futures is a booklet which introduces career clusters in Missouri. Career clusters is a framework to help learners of all ages prepare for the global, knowledge-based economy of today and the future. This framework will assist schools in offering programs that include differentiated academic content as well as provide a means for students to acquire credentials recognized by business and industry. These programs of study will allow for students to create their own personal plan of study based upon individual interests, abilities, and career maturity. This information can be found on the Division of Career Education webpage at http://dese.mo.gov/divcareered/ under the heading Career Clusters Booklet.
