New this year, Grad+ is a BVSD initiative designed to increase high school students’ postsecondary opportunities in both higher education and workplace arenas.  Delineated into four quadrants, Grad+ consists of a series of programs -- some of which are already well known (AP, concurrent enrollment, etc.), and some of which have existed for some time but not everyone knows about (Seal of Biliteracy, District Select, etc.). I’m here to help expand and grow the Monarch offerings in each quadrant by systematizing programs that are already offered at Monarch, bringing in new programs, and working with and supporting students, staff and the greater Monarch community with anything Grad+ related. 


The Grad+ quadrants =

  1. College before Graduation and Advanced Courses (AP, Concurrent Enrollment, Dual Enrollment via CU Succeed, District Select)

  2. Industry Certification

  3. Seal of Biliteracy

  4. Work-based learning (internships, apprenticeships, mentorships and opportunities to learn about various careers, etc.)


Feel free to check out BVSD’s Grad+ site and read the weekly Monarch Messenger Grad+ posts I write, and please don’t hesitate to reach out to me directly.
