Decision Education Foundation Recognizes JCHS with Major Steps Forward Article

Great Work by All!

The Decision Education Foundation, also know as DEF, has recognized the efforts of Junction City High School's 9th grade TEAM teachers along with teacher Liz Henderson.

DEF's Mission
To improve the lives of young people by empowering them with effective Decision Skills.

Steps to Success Reaches All 9th Graders

A Decision Skills course reaching all 9th graders is underway this fall at Junction City High School, representing a major step forward for DEF. Based on previous success with DEF’s StrongStart program, Junction City decided to implement DEF material as the organizing principal of a first trimester freshman success class. DEF worked with school administrators, counselors, and teachers to frame class objectives and develop a course concept around Personal Best, Academic Success, and Career Exploration (PACE) with decision education at its core. “Steps to Success” is currently underway with 150 freshmen and has already generated positive feedback. As a model for reaching all students, Steps to Success can be adopted by schools as is, adapted in developing a course tailored to their school, and incorporated as modules within existing freshmen courses. Freshman success has become an area of expanded attention recently, since research has established freshman year on track measures as critical to eventual graduation.
