It's official! We have moved to our new District website, now located at acpsd.net. Please take a moment to visit and explore our new online home for updated information on all items related to Aiken County Public Schools.
 
As a reminder, our individual school web pages will continue to link back to School Fusion (hosted at this site) until the start of the new school year when all school-related pages will make the transition to our new web platform.
 
Thank you for your continued interest in and support of Aiken County Public Schools, and welcome to acpsd.net!  
Career Development
Welcome to Paul Knox Middle's career development page!
I am very excited to have the opportunity to help students explore the world of careers this year.  As a part of Aiken County School District’s implementation of the Personal Pathways to Success Initiative, all students in grades 6-12 take part in career cluster exploration.  Students will be exploring careers and the 16 nationally recognized career clusters through daily career videos, classroom activities, speakers, field trips, virtual job shadowing and career assessments.  My goal this year is to help each student begin thinking about their future and what lies ahead of them after high school.

7th Grade Career Assessments
7th grade students will be completing a career interest inventory on either November 16th or 17th during their ELA class. The assessment will be accessed through the SCOIS website (www.scois.net). Each student will be given login information in order to access their individual portfolio.
The results of this inventory will help students discover what career clusters they may be interested in exploring according to their likes and dislikes. Students will also be given the opportunity to research different career options within the 16 career clusters during this time.

6th grade Career Assessments
On October 26th and October 28th, I will be visiting 6th grade science classes. We will be talking about different personality types and how they could influence career choices. During this time the students will take a look at their interests, values, skills and complete an interest inventory to discover their dominant personality type. They will then find out what careers may be a good match for their personality type. Each 6th grade student will receive a Career Game book to use during this activity. Students will be allowed to bring these books home, so I encourage parents to take a look at your child's results!
