Julian Named Interim CCCR Director

Julian Named Interim Director of College, Career & Community Readiness
Posted on 11/11/2020
Curt JulianCurt Julian has stepped into the role of Interim Director of the College, Career & Community Readiness Department (CCCR) after spending the last 35 years as both a teacher and administrator in the Green Bay Area Public School District. The COVID-19 pandemic has posed challenges in this area, but Curt is confident that the CCCR Department will be able to continue providing students with the skills and resources necessary to become college, career and community ready. Much of this work will be accomplished through the positive relationships the District has built with community partners in both the business and post-secondary education sectors.

Recently, the District, in partnership with Northeast Wisconsin Technical College and the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, launched the first of a series of virtual field trips related to various career pathways. Students were able to learn about the various programs and careers available in Public Safety and had the opportunity to see the facilities, view demonstrations, hear from students currently enrolled in the post-secondary programs, and meet and ask questions of the instructors in the programs. Future virtual field trips are planned in the areas of Health Sciences, Business, Arts/Humanities, Social Sciences, Human Services, Education, Engineering, and Computer Science. These are being done to advance the District’s commitment to an ongoing focus on academic and career planning (ACP) for all GBAPS students.

Another development is the implementation of Turbo-Go Centers at the middle school level to support the Turbocharge initiative at the high school level with the goal of having students graduate from high school with viable college credits. This will help expand the CCCR focus to begin prior to the high school years. Middle school students already have the ability to take exploratory courses and the Turbo-Go Centers, along with the school counselors, will help students begin to form a vision and set goals for their future beyond high school and become more involved in planning an academic pathway to meet their career goals.

Current options involving hands-on learning for students are the Bridges Construction & Renovation program, City Stadium Automotive® program, Bay Link Manufacturing® program, Youth Apprenticeship program and others. These programs continue to find ways to make sure students are engaged and able to participate in a hands-on environment while also following safety guidelines established to protect students in a world currently dominated by virtual learning.
