The St. Vrain Valley School District recently received a three year, $7 million state Opportunity Now grant to invest in career pathways with three other school districts, focusing on education, advanced manufacturing and information technology.
“We have found that providing students with career exploration is what really ignites their passions,” said St. Vrain Chief Academic Officer Diane Lauer. “It makes such a strong connection between what they’re learning in their academic classes to the real world. We have been adding various pathways layer by layer. When we saw this opportunity, we were excited to see how we could scale the work that we’re already doing.”
