  • And the earlier years, can be the most influential – especially grades 7 & 8.
  • Just like you may have majored in university, students can major in high school.
  • Stand up if you are a major teacher in this area.
  • OSP tracker cards at each table. OSP Tracker Cards at each table. The OSP web site has a new SHSM link. Check it out.
  • Because most teachers are university trained and have very little knowledge about the college system and what it can offer students. Forums and activities are planned throughout the year for teachers of all grades, students (grades 7 – 12), parents. To make all parties more aware of college pathways.
