                                                  Parents and Guardians,
                                                  As Superintendent, I have the privilege of championing the 330+ Choice
                                                  and Career programs offered by the School District of Palm Beach County.
                                                  This booklet is your guide to explore the exceptional options available to
                                                  our PK-12 students for the 2024-2025 school year.
                                                  Our School District is committed to providing a comprehensive educational
                                                  experience that will prepare them for the ever-evolving business needs
                                                  of tomorrow. We firmly believe that offering these robust programs is
                                                  instrumental in empowering our students to gain a competitive edge and
                                                  a head start towards their future careers.

                                                  This year’s theme is “Plant Your Future.” Our Choice and Career programs
               are designed to help students do just that through a tailored combination of academic rigor, hands-on training, and
               industry partnerships. The programs, which include 95 different industry certifications, plant the seeds that provide
               our students with the necessary skills and experiences that will empower them to thrive in the 21st-century workplace.

               Families are invited to explore the variety of program options such as Cybersecurity, Medical Sciences, Information
               Technology, the Performing Arts, International Baccalaureate, Dual Language, Science, Technology, Engineering,
               and Math education (STEM), and more. These programs not only offer rigorous coursework, but they also expose
               our students to real-world scenarios, enabling them to apply theoretical concepts to practical situations. Additionally,
               our partnerships with local businesses and industry professionals provide invaluable mentorship and internship
               opportunities, further enhancing our students' understanding and preparation for their chosen careers.
               The impact of these Choice and Career-themed programs on our students cannot be overstated. They instill a sense
               of purpose and direction, while fostering critical thinking, problem-solving skills, collaboration, and adaptability - all
               vital attributes that are highly sought after in today's economy.
