Finding Solutions to Today's Challenges

Opryland Resort and Convention Center
Nashville, Tennessee
July 16-19, 2014

The focus of the 28th Annual HSTW Staff Development Conference will be optional career pathways and changes in instruction and support that are necessary to adequately prepare students for college, advanced training and the workforce.

In today’s competitive world, students must be able to think, analyze, research, communicate and solve complex problems. For students to leave high school prepared there are a number of challenges schools face:

  • Preparing more middle grades students to succeed in high school where the curriculum is aligned to college- and career-readiness standards
  • Graduating at least 90 percent or more of students ready for work, advanced training or college
  • Equipping high school students with the 21st-century and interpersonal skills they need to be successful as adults
  • Preparing young adults, especially males, to acquire the skills needed to pursue postsecondary goals that will lead to good jobs
  • Assisting students to formulate career goals based on accurate information about opportunities and helping students to choose postsecondary institutions and majors that will maximize their career options

Middle grades schools, high schools and technology centers can meet these challenges by working together to create quality optional pathways and prepare more high school graduates for work, advanced training and college. See our conference brochure for more information.
