  • November is Career Development Month

    The process to educate CHCCS students about their career options and development may start earlier and offer far more resources than many parents, and even staff, know. What better time to showcase the numerous paths toward career exploration and preparation than this month, Career Development Month. And the education professionals who oversee this process are the creative and dedicated career development coordinators (CDC’s) in our high schools.
