Career Readiness Events



Our Work

Oakland Schools Career Readiness delivers education with purpose, providing K-12 students opportunities as unique as they each student.

Postsecondary

Students are often asked what they will do after high school. Many students will indicate that they are going to college. In most cases a four year college.  However, many students are unsure of what college they will attend, what degree they will pursue, or understand that their intended pathway may not need a traditional four year degree. 

  OS STEM

Oakland Schools STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education provides an avenue to engage in all content areas, while providing learners an opportunity to develop technical literacy and learning agility. 

Oakland County Teacher Referent Groups

Many Oakland County teachers of business, finance, marketing, health sciences, information technology, architecture and engineering career and technical education programs gather four times a year as members of five separate referent groups. Those groups include Business/Finance, Marketing, Health Sciences, Information Technology and Architecture and Engineering Design.
