Career Readiness

Eagle County School District is dedicated to preparing global-ready students for lifelong learning and the careers they choose aligned with their interests, values and aspirations. We prepare students to successfully pursue their chosen career through focused exploration, planning, and guidance. 

There are a variety of classes available to students to support their interests and future careers over the course of their General Education. Advanced Placement and Dual Enrollment (also known as Concurrent Enrollment) courses allow high school students to earn high school and college credit at the same time. Honors classes provide academically challenging, college-preparatory coursework. Career and Technical Education classes prepare students for high-wage, high-demand careers. ECSD also offers Credit Recovery programs to help students who have fallen behind in their coursework to "recover" credits.

Our approach to Career Readiness is designed to foster the skills students will need in the real world. Career Readiness Skills include things like communication, critical thinking, emotional intelligence, time and stress management, and more. 

Individual Career and Academic Plan (ICAP) is a Colorado state requirement for students in grades 6-12 that intentionally guides students and families in the exploration of career, academic, and post-secondary opportunities. With the support of adults, students develop the attitudes, awareness, knowledge, and skills to create their own meaningful and powerful pathways to be career- and college-ready.
