Hello to Xello
Owosso High School will be using a new platform for Career and College Exploration starting this year. Xello.org is a brand new website replacing the long running careercruising.com which students have used for several years. The program is user friendly and students can easily navigate to draw the connections between career, major and college. Students can look up a career that they may be interested in, see if the career is "in-demand", what type of education background you need to a get for a certification or degree for that career and what college or training institute may have that program for that major. Students at the high school are expected to access Xello.org and complete their Education Development Plan (EDP). Watch Mr. Ciarlino video for OHS students to learn how to complete their Xello EDP.
November 18 is Family Table Talk Day: Careers
Owosso Public Schools will be promoting Career Exploration Month by highlighting Family Table Talk Day. On November 18th, OHS will be providing some lessons and activities for Owosso families to sit down together and talk about what their student might want to do after they graduate. We believe it is important to have those conversations with children starting early but continuing all through-out high school and beyond. Like us on Facebook and continue to look for information about Family Table Talk Day.
