Requesting Courses for Next Year

Choosing a Career Path 
Students at Rice Lake High School have many resources available to guide them in choosing one or more career paths suited to their abilities and interests 

  • Message from the Principal about Career readiness at RLHS
  • Starting in Freshmen Successcounselors and teachers have students explore post-secondary options and develop a 4-year high school plan
  • In the sophomore year, students and parents attend sophomore conferences with their counselor to review their Academic and Career Plan (formerly know as the e-portfolio) and adjust the 4-year plan if needed
  • Juniors will once again meet with their counselor to discuss post-secondary planning
  • Seniors will participate in a senior meeting with counselors to review material submissions for post-secondary plans
  • Academic and Career Plan (ACP):  Each year, students will add requirements to showcase their individual strengths and skills.  This will also be an opportunity for all students to re-evaluate post-secondary plans and make necessary adjustments.
