Building a Pipeline to SF Careers - Highlights for March 24-30, 2015


It’s tax season, and the Academy of Finance students at Lincoln High are headed to the audit, tax and advisory firm KPMG for an up-close look at some of the careers they are already preparing for while in school. SFUSD’s Career Technical Education (CTE) academies expose students to different career fields, motivate them to think about their personal college and career paths, and integrate the development of 21st-century professional skills, all helping them progress toward the profile of an SFUSD graduate.

When:     Tuesday, March 24 / 10:45 – 11:15 a.m.

Where:    KPMG / 55 2nd St. / 11th floor (call 925.878.5488 for security access)


Students in 11th and 12th grades at John O’Connell High are developing skills in culinary entrepreneurship, health and behavioral sciences, environmental technology, and building and construction. They work in an integrated, project-based lab with courses taught by teams of instructors. As they delve into their individual interests with internships and college courses, students not only train for specific careers, they also create a strong foundation for college. Students will be presenting and defending their work in a spring showcase.

When:   Thursday, March 26 / 12:30-1:30 p.m.

Where:  John O’Connell HS / 2355 Folsom St.


SFUSD schools will be closed Monday, March 30 – Friday, April 3, 2015 for spring break.
