2020-2021 Transition to High School


Transition to High School Meeting

Planning is underway for current Butler 8th graders as they transition to 9th grade next year. 

The Transition to High School meeting covered topics such as the importance of grades, earning credits in high school, graduation requirements, and how to best select courses that will prepare students to meet their future goals. We shared online career tools that will help to guide students through the course selection process.
