What are the skills a Clear Creek High School graduate should have to be successful in a 21st century world?
That is the question students, teachers, administrators, elected officials, business leaders and the community have been tasked to answer as part of the Homegrown Talent Initiative. It’s more than just subject matter; it’s about the kinds of skills students need to find jobs and be successful adults.
Clear Creek is one of eight school districts in the state selected to participate in this initiative that hopes to “support students in finding their passions, engaging with their community and developing new skills and competencies, all while simultaneously attaining the credentials necessary to qualify for a wide range of post-secondary pathways,” according to the HTI website.
The district already uses ICAP — Individual Career and Academic Plan — that allows students to select careers and work toward them, according to Becky Dancer, who is coordinating HTI for the district. HTI takes the individualization a step further.
