Freshmen Cohort

Oregon Career Information System Link
CiS High School Tools
These are the tools you personalize to get the most from your high school experience—and to remember all that you accomplished.

Education Plan/Career Plan: Career Plan is about YOU. Career Plan helps you identify what’s important to you and how to make your dreams a reality. You also learn skills that will be important to your success—decision-making, goal-setting, and management.

Career-Related Learning Experiences/CRLE Plans: CRLE experiences can be part-time jobs, volunteer work, and job shadows—experiences that you learn from.

Course Planner: Create your personal course plan to map your high school and college coursework.

Senior Project/EA Project: Extended applications help you apply your skills and grow. They are often called senior projects. An extended application relates your personal, career, or educational goals to a project that you create.

Résumé Creator: Keep your résumé up to date with your most current work history and accomplishments.
Freshmen Cohort is designed as a class for incoming freshmen to bolster skills related to literacy, academic vocabulary building, and college career readiness. Students will complete the Freshmen portion of the CIS portfolio. If all work is caught up, studying or silent reading is the only other option.
Unless stated otherwise, all assignments are due at the end of the cohort period. No exceptions (other than absense) will be made.The assignments are structured to allow plenty of time for completion within the 90-minute class period.
