National Virtual College Application and Career Exploration Week
In observance of the National Virtual College Application and Career Exploration Week, Craigmont High School Guidance would like to focus on helping students and families plan for high school, college, and a career. What is College? “College” means any education and training after high school, including certificate programs, career and technical programs, apprenticeships, two year degree programs, four-year degree programs, or military training. It is important that students explore postsecondary opportunities and pursue education and training beyond high school.
Please view the PowerPoint of Career Clusters to see how careers are related.Complete the Personality Inventory and the Career Inventory to help you to identify a career that best fits you.
Please view the Occupational Outlook Handbook for career guidance about hundreds of careers as you research your chosen career.

2020-2021 School Year Update
Classes will begin virtually August 31, 2020, with high quality instruction every day! The virtual start of school will not be anything like the final quarter of last year. Every student will be provided with a digital device, and students will have live interaction with their teachers and peers every day as they follow the routine of a regular school day. We will continue to provide meals for students. Students who receive special education services will also receive accommodations to support them in reaching their learning goals.
The district is working to identify childcare providers, such as the YMCA, that offer reduced or no-cost childcare options for essential working staff and families. Please find more information about identified child care resources here. (Please note, the availability of some providers may be subject to change.)
Please view the latest frequently asked questions about virtual learning for your most pressing questions about digital devices, student meals, books and learning materials, etc.
Lastly, all returning SCS families must update student information in PowerSchool before day 1. We need contacts, addresses and important health information updated so we can provide the best support possible. Please make sure you log into Powerschool and register your child for the new year. This is a different process from the selection of a learning method. Many of you have completed the registration process - which involves going in PowerSchool and updating your child's information - including address/ emergency contacts etc. Once complete, you will select "Update". If you need assistance, please call the school at 901-416-4312 or Mrs. Scott at 901-286-5410 or Ms. Livingston at 901-877-4005. New students can email iChoose@scsk12.org to get started with registration for the 2020-21 school year. Don't forget, all students must be up to date on immunizations to start school, too. For more information about immunizations, please visit the TN Department of Health.
Please note that all learning options submitted during the commitment window (July 6 - July 24) and during new student registration will apply when schools reopen.
