This school year, Get Ready is working with all students on the Get Ready Postsecondary Pathways Curriculum.

Get Ready is also providing monthly independent activities for students to engage in. Students can access the activities by clicking on the Get Ready Star in their Advisory Schoology course virtual advisory classroom.
