    News release from Adams County School District 50

    Gaining access to a local, trained workforce is essential to employer growth.  Adams County School District 50 announces the opening of a district Future Center dedicated to bridging the gap between its students and the employment opportunities available in the immediate area.  Located just inside the main entrance to Westminster High School at 6933 Raleigh Street, the Future Center will offer students, families and staff access to information about employers, career choices, the military, training and college options for graduates. 

    Local employers are invited to participate in the Future Center Open House on Monday, November 2, 5-7 p.m.  The Open House will allow employers to exhibit marketing materials and “tools of their trade” while answering questions from students, families and staff about careers, skill requirements and hiring opportunities.  At 6:30 pm, School Board members will perform a Ribbon Cutting celebration of this significant district and community resource.

    Adams County School District 50 is committed to providing the assistance and resources to ensure all students graduate ready to succeed in work and life.  To this end, the district aligns the development of its students with the State of Colorado adopted definition of Postsecondary and Workforce Readiness:

    Postsecondary and workforce readiness” describes the knowledge, skills and behaviors essential for high school graduates to be prepared to enter college and the workforce and to compete in the global economy. To be designated as postsecondary and workforce ready, secondary students shall demonstrate that the following content knowledge and learning and behavior skills have been achieved without the need for remedial instruction or training. This demonstration includes the completion of increasingly challenging, engaging and coherent academic work and experiences, and the achievement of proficiency shown by a body of evidence including postsecondary and workforce readiness assessments and other relevant materials that document a student’s postsecondary and workforce readiness.
     
    The Future Center will play a significant role in that preparation.
    To participate in the November 2 open house event, please contact either Colleen Enright, Future Center Coordinator at 303-657-3976 or cenright@adams50.org or Whitney Allen, Community and Education Specialist Coordinator at 303-657-3985 or wallen@adams50.org no later than October 14, 2015.
