    SIT Post-Secondary Committee Recommendations
    The Post-Secondary Committee believes that to ensure College/Career Readiness for each student at ETHS, the post-secondary planning process must begin as soon as a student enters high school. Students need to gain awareness and understanding of the opportunities available to them after high school and the paths that they need to take to get them there. Our recommendations are designed to explore two current methods of providing information to students and analyze how to adapt them to assist students with post-secondary planning in a more in a timely and accessible manner. These are by no means the only changes required to improve the current process.
