Description

Dear Industry Expert,

The word is out! For the fifteen months, the Proviso West High School community has been engaged in efforts to create transformational change that has placed us on a pathway to prominence. We are eager to increase the involvement of our business community in this work and wish to invite you to join our Industry Council for The College & Career Academies of Proviso West! Our Academies are a component of the Proviso Township District 209 Global Ready Initiative that aims to ensure all students will be able to translate information gained through personal and career exploration into a postsecondary plan for attainment of a credential and entry into the world of work. Your input is a vital element in the success of our graduates, and we are eager to welcome you to campus to share your expertise!

Driven by student interest and workforce projections, The College & Career Academies of Proviso West provide access to authentic, hands-on learning experiences. Through the Academies, student will access an interdisciplinary program of study comprised of rigorous core and specialized courses in their chosen career area. Upon completion of coursework and a proficiency evaluation, students have an opportunity to earn certifications and/or endorsements in selected career and technical pursuits.

Our goal is to produce Proviso West graduates that have the academic, career, and life skills required for success! To ensure our programs provide the educational foundation to achieve this goal, we are seeking Industry Experts in the following career areas to join our Industry Council that will guide the development of our Academies:

Arts & Communication | Architecture & Construction | Business Management & Administration
