Kent ISD Career Readiness

Kent ISD is committed to supporting schools, families, and communities in their efforts to prepare students for success in both career and college. The Career Readiness Department is driven by two central questions:

  • What do students want to be when they grow up?
  • How can schools, families, and communities help them explore their options?

We provide a variety of services and resources to help educators develop students' career maturity, while enhancing their academic experiences in grades K-12. ‚ÄčAdditionally, we find local employers to work along-side as partners in this endeavor.

Did you know that the KISA (Kent Intermediate Superintendents Association) identified "every student college and career ready" as one of their primary goals? 


11,485 students were directly impacted by career readiness programs and services, excluding MI Career Quest. 1,205 teachers and counselors were directly impacted by our programs and services. 731 business professionals participated in our programs. 142 companies partnered with career readiness.

‚ÄčIs it making an impact? You bet it is.

Whether you are a student or educator engaging with our services or a business partner helping to bring the experiences to life, this work is making a difference. Just take a look at the numbers! Want more evidence? View the 2015-16 Career Readiness annual report
