Students Explore Careers During COOL Week 2018

Students Explore Careers During COOL Week 2018
Posted on 02/09/2018
An LISD students participates in COOL Week at the Four Paws at Four Points veterinary office.

 Thank You, COOL Week Business Partners.

Leander ISD offers a one-of-a kind opportunity for 12th-grade students to “try-on” a career before graduating high school. The structured, work-based experience places students inside an industry to understand the day-to-day life in a career path in which they are interested before committing to pursuing that career in their post-secondary life. 

Career Opportunities on Location (COOL) Week is now in its 22nd year at LISD.   The key goal of COOL Week is for students to become aware of the aptitude, education and training required to be successful in their chosen profession. The program focuses on the application of skills such as teamwork, critical thinking, problem solving and communication.

Before students are placed in a work environment, they are trained in the steps of a hiring process by participating in job matching. Students submit an application, and campus transition coordinators conduct interviews and training sessions to find the best fit for each student.

Check out the gallery below to see some of our students out in our local communities this year. Thank you to our business partners for making this experience a reality for our students!
