CPHS Pathway Specialists

College Place School District made a commitment to meet students needs and assist them in succeeding to graduation and becoming a productive citizen. In doing so, the College Place High School has hired Pathway Specialists for each grade level.  The Pathway Specialist will learn about each student and follow them throughout their entire high school career. This specific focus on each student creates stability, student knowledge and consistency for our kids here at College Place High School.   

In addition, the Pathway Specialists set the curriculum and direction for the Advisory class that is held every Friday. Each grade level has a specific advisory focus that will assist the students navigating through high school and beyond.
