January 15, 2015


In conjunction with the City of La Porte, GLEDC, and the Greater La Porte Chamber of Commerce, the La Porte Community School Corporation will be unveiling opportunities to engage our business community in K-12 career and technical education experiences. Considering the recent changes in the academic standards to include a career focus, it is imperative that we foster opportunities at all grade levels for students to explore careers of interest.

Currently, the Indiana school grading system, high school graduation requirements, and high school course selections predominantly encourage students to attend college. It is our desire to collaborate with our business community and establish a K-12 menu of student career experiences. These experiences would better prepare them for the world of work and help provide a workforce that meets the needs of the La Porte community.

It is the vision of the La Porte Community School Corporation to increase the number of school-business partnerships and foster relationships which lead to new opportunities for our students. At the secondary level, we will be looking for partnerships which provide guest speakers to make presentations regarding their career and/or the products associated with their field of work. Job shadowing experiences, creation of “maker’s spaces”, school-to-work opportunities, and internships will also be utilized. In the middle school and lower grades, we would like to expose students to a variety of careers through field trips, guest speakers, classroom visits, virtual tours, etc.

Many of our local businesses are already partnering with schools in other ventures and we intend to continue those efforts. Career exploration and preparation would create another valuable link between our school community and local businesses.

We are thankful for the efforts of the Mayor, GLEDC, and the Chamber of Commerce in initiating this new opportunity to engage the La Porte community in the education and preparation of our students.
