    Personalized Learning Experience

    In the School District of Ashland, we know that all learning is personal. As students develop their Academic and Career Plan, we challenge them pursue learning experiences that will keep as many doors open as possible after high school. Students should strive to select experiences that are relevant, academically and technically rigorous, and provide the opportunity to develop the knowledge, skills and dispositions identified in our Vision of Our Graduate. The following opportunities provide several examples of how students can personalize their own education to support their personal, academic and career goals:

    • Career (Work-Based) Learning Programs
    • College in High School Programming
    • Opportunities to Earn Industry Certifications
    • Personalized Career & Technical Education Programs
