These resources help meet the Individualized Learning Plan and Essential Workplace Ethics mandates enacted by the Kentucky Department of Education.

myStrategic Compass is an interactive customizable career planning and exploration tool that provides students with a roadmap to success in whatever career they choose. myStrategic Compass helps students align their skills, interests, and goals with careers and provides detailed information about those careers such as job descriptions, wages, education and training requirements, job forecasts, and personal qualities needed to be successful. Students begin working in myStrategic Compass in 6th grade and continue through 12th grade.

Partners for Education is also utilizing WIN’s Essential Soft Skills Courseware, a blended learning solution that includes interactive online content and offline materials that teachers can use in the classroom. The courseware is comprised of four modules: Communicating Effectively, Conveying Professionalism, Promoting Teamwork and Collaboration, and Thinking Critically and Solving Problems.
