Seniors--it's that time that many of you are planning for your future after you leave LHS and applying to colleges is one of the first and most important steps. As you apply for the colleges and universities and tech schools of your choice, remember to request a transcript from my office to be sent to your chosen school.
To send a transcript:
Pick up a yellow transcript request form from right inside my door of my office; fill it out and get the signatures needed; turn it in in the black tray next to the forms. I send transcripts once a week, usually on Wednesdays.
Recent legislation, section 167.902 RSMo, requires that the Missouri Department of Economic Development shall annually identify occupations in which a critical need or shortage of trained personnel exists in the labor markets in this state and provide such information to the state board of education. The state board of education in turn will require schools to provide this information to students for the purpose of emphasizing areas of critical workforce needs and shortages in the labor markets in this state to high school students to support such students' career pathway decisions.
