  • Additional Information for Parents

    Oregon’s Partnership for Occupational and Career Information (POCI) undertook a project to deliver career information directly to a parent audience in order to better address two of its goals:

    1. Improve parent access to information and planning resources that relate educational preparation to career goals and expectations.
    2. Equip teachers, administrators, and counselors with the knowledge and skills needed to assist parents with occupational information, career exploration, and educational opportunities and financing.
