Career Development:

Our career development curriculum focuses on helping students learn about themselves, learn about occupations, learn about college and postsecondary options, and learn about employment.  We use the Montana Career Information System and partner with teachers to implement career and college classroom guidance lessons.  Below are some helpful resources students can use in the career and college planning process.

 

Montana Career Information System (MCIS): All students have MCIS accounts that they can access through Powerschool or they can login here: https://portal.mtcis.intocareers.org/
