The responsibility for preparing the nation’s workforce is more important than ever. Knowledge is growing exponentially and lifelong learning is imperative. Communications, technology and biotechnology are changing at a rapid pace and our students will enter careers that have not yet been created. On average, our students will change career fields seven times prior to retirement. As workplace changes accelerate and require ever-higher skill levels, continuous workforce learning will become a critical priority.

SAISD programs are changing to meet this need. We are integrating academic, professional and technical standards designed to meet the challenges of the 21st century. Through collaborative planning, students are obtaining a multitude of experiences and knowledge. Decisions made today directly impact career options available for tomorrow.

The mission of the SAISD is to graduate all students as responsible citizens with the academic and social preparation to pursue higher education, join the military and enter the workforce. Regardless of the path a student selects following graduation, each path leads to a career in the ever-changing workforce. Providing students and parents with academic/career guidance programs will allow them to explore career interests and academic opportunities as they make informed decisions regarding their future.

The Educational Plan should be used by parents and students to plan high school courses and maintain a record of credits earned to ensure students remain on track to graduate with their peers. As students become familiar with all of the course requirements for the Recommended and Distinguished Achievement diplomas, completion of the annual course selection forms and meetings with guidance counselors will be more meaningful.
