The School District of Janesville is hosting an 8th-Grade Virtual Industry Day for the 8th-Grade students from TAGOS Leadership Academy, Edison, Marshall, and Franklin middle schools. Every student will be selecting their career cluster of interest and then learning from business and industry representatives from those career clusters as they consider potential careers. During this time, students will meet company executives and employees who will share information about their trade/business, the skills and education needed to work in that environment, and answer student questions.
When students imagine and visualize a potential career pathway to a successful career at an early age, the chance of successful completion of high school and moving on to gainful employment grows exponentially. We want all students to have an academic and career plan that includes a post-high school plan. Industry Day is another way for us to help deliver on the promise to ensure that every student in Janesville graduates ready for college, career, and life.
