The Future Ready Institute freshman class had a great experience visiting Camp Lookout for the day. Team Building activities were challenging for the students! The "build them up business, not the tear them down business," was modeled by our students. Everyone was helping everyone on the team to get through the various challenges. The FRI students did a great job on showing the community what it means to be a Trojan!

Superintendent Bryan Johnson's new initiative for all high schools to offer a "Future Ready Institute" for students as a way to expose them to various occupations and make all learning relevant to students by using real-life, problem-based, cross-curricular work. This will be for both honors and non-honors students and will meet all requirements for students to graduate and continue on to college or the workforce. They will have multiple opportunities throughout the 4 year program for dual credit, as well as DE and AP classes. In a nutshell: Students may choose to apply and attend any school based on the institute they wish to be a part of, but they must provide their own transportation. The institute offered in 2018-2019 school year at SDHS is Entrepreneurship with emphasis in A/V production, Marketing and Web Development. Students will be able to participate in the institute while in band, sports or JROTC. They will be able to take regular and/or honors classes, as well. Students will have the opportunity to accumulate as many as 21 hours of college credit while participating in an institute throughout high school. We currently have 2 partnerships with businesses in downtown Chattanooga and have others who have shown interest, including UTC's School of Business. The institute is beginning with 9th grade students. We currently have 70 students who are participating.  All teachers participating in the institute this year have participated in a week-long training at UNUM this past summer and have learned much about cross-curricular, problem-based learning. The culmination for students in the institute will be their work-based learning during their senior year, whether partnered with an outside business or working at school on our website, in our store, or with local teachers.
