Countdown to Your Future
Countdown to Your Future focuses students on education and career planning during middle and high school and prepares them for the transition to life after high school. Students are encouraged to align educational programs with their plans for entry into the workforce, college or the military.
Countdown to Your Future presentations are made by business partners in all of our district’s eighth grade classrooms during Career Day. The strength of the presentations is an interactive discussion format that includes starting salaries and a budget exercise presented by a “real life” business person.
Presenters share personal experiences and stories that demonstrate the importance of students preparing now for post-secondary education including: the military, community college, technical college, and/or a four-year college or university, or the workforce. Students are encouraged to develop an individual plan for high school and the transition to college and other post-secondary options. We want Fort Bend ISD students to be prepared for employment opportunities that are rewarding and fit their interests and budget needs.
