Career Readiness Capstone: In this course, students will reflect upon, analyze, and synthesize the knowledge and skills learned through their vocational/technical training and coursework. Students, with the assistance of the instructor, will design a culminating project that encompasses the six vocational strands from the Massachusetts Vocational Education Frameworks. Capstone projects may include, but are not limited to, designing a business starting with a business plan, creating employee schedules, addressing insurance needs, and building a physical model business. Students may opt to develop a community-based project such as such as implementation of a new program at a daycare center or shelter. This capstone is meant to be student driven and will reflect student interest in the chosen area. At years end, the student will present his/her work to a panel, which includes a technical teacher, a staff member, and a member from industry for grading. The year will conclude with an open house for parents/guardians, families, and members of advisory boards to view student presentations and celebrate student achievement in their chosen area.
