Tahoe Truckee school district hires career-readiness position
TAHOE-TRUCKEE, Calif. — The Tahoe Truckee Unified School District recently announced the hiring of Robert Jamison as Career Center Technician.
In his role, Jamison will assist students at North Tahoe High and Truckee High research and evaluate career and educational options and help them create academic timelines for their four years in high school.
Jamison will also help students navigate Naviance, an online program the district provides thanks to a grant from Excellence in Education, that has college planning and career assessment tools.
“The decision to hire a Career Center Technician came about following a recent student panel where students expressed the need for more resources on campus to guide them through their post-secondary educational and career planning,” said TTUSD Superintendent Rob Leri. “This position provides an excellent resource for students and is in alignment with the district’s vision of providing opportunities for scholars to thrive and be successful in a globally competitive age.”
Jamison is on campus at Truckee High Monday through Wednesday, and at North Tahoe High Thursday and Friday.
Sierra High in Truckee also has a part-time Career Center Technician, Karen Honeywell, who is on site Monday and Thursday.
Career technicians coordinate academic enrichment programs with Sierra College so local students can take college classes and earn dual credits.
They also work closely with high school counselors and provide the opportunity for more one-on-one time with students to support their success at school.
