First, if you have an 8th- or 10th-grade student, please encourage their participation in Operation Preparation.
If you have a middle or high school student, help them in the development of their Individual Learning Plan -- an online tool designed to allow students to explore careers, track coursework and activities, and search for postsecondary options. It is mandatory for students in 6-12 grade and parents are required to sign off on a student’s Individual Learning Plan each year. Login credentials are available from the child’s school.
Parents should also consider becoming a community advisor for Operation Preparation. You could make the difference in the life of child – your own AND another! Contact your school/district office to sign up.
