Scott Goggin, Superintendent,
Midview Local Schools


College and career readiness. We hear those buzzwords constantly in education. But what does that really mean and how do we achieve it? I wanted to share with you how Midview Local Schools has successfully implemented two programs to help our students achieve college and career readiness.

Most of you are familiar with Project Lead the Way (PTLW) and how it’s being used to develop hands-on, project-based STEM curricula. This year, our district began using PTLW’s Gateway to Technology (GTT) program in our middle school. Every seventh and eighth-grade student is taking a Design and Modeling course using real life, problem-based curricula while learning about the variety of engineering careers. At the high school level, we offer three PLTW courses for our students.

Our PTLW program is preparing our students to be college and career ready by tracking their success into college. We are putting our students through national engineering curriculum, bringing together educational programs for jobs that will be viable for them in the future.

I am also very excited to share with you our progress in our new Naviance program. This online program connects students with U.S. Labor statistics from the federal government, helping them find job prospects across the country with data on salaries, comparisons to other states and more.
Students and parents are also able to find detailed information about college programs, such as how many students are accepted and what types of tests and scores they need to get in. Additionally, Naviance aids students in the application process.

The program will let us know what school students enrolled in, when they leave and what degree they earned. Throughout that time, it marks their progress and sends feedback to our district on how they are doing, allowing us to identify areas of improvement in our curriculum. This is a process that we started this school year. I am happy to say that all of our seniors have been signed up and we are working with our remaining high school students.

I am thrilled to see this type of progress happening at Midview. We have been taking huge leaps forward in the future of technology in education and how we can use it to improve our curriculum and prepare our students for college, careers and life.
