The results from the survey had the following implications: 1. There are Business and Computer Science programs offered in our district that our seventh grade students have not been made aware of. All middle school students will be informed of the Business and Computer Science pathways that are offered in the district and the feeder high schools through Career Development courses or Advisement in all seven middle schools. The CTAE Department will provide copies of the Career Connections (Pathway) booklets and other promotional materials to the middle schools.

2. Our district's middle school students have basic knowledge of internet usage and utilization of Microsoft Office products. Each middle school Business and Computer Science lab will be upgraded to Microsoft Office 2007. CTAE administrators will work with the middle school counselors to provide opportunities for all students to take at least one Business and Computer Science class while in middle school.
