With the passage of Graduation Pathways, students are now able to individualize their graduation requirements to align to their postsecondary goal. No longer must all students fit into the same academic mold, but rather, they can choose the options that best meet their postsecondary needs and aspirations. Students can create pathways that serve their educational interests and prepares them for postsecondary educational and career opportunities. To learn more about the graduation pathways, visit Indiana Department of Education page

In an effort to prepare students for graduation and better align with the pipelines within Northeast Indiana, Fort Wayne Community Schools has embarked on a new initiative to work with local industry partners to better connect our students to the job and career opportunities in our city and region.  More information will be coming in the next several week’s to highlight those efforts.
