Slideshow: Aurora students display their pathways work

Aurora Public Schools showed off its academic and career pathways program to the city’s mayor and other elected officials and community members Thursday morning.

Student demonstrators in elementary, middle and high schools showed off projects ranging from rocket launching to dentistry. The pathways program is a signature initiative in Aurora aimed at helping align what students learn in the district’s schools with the skills that are needed for success in higher education and the workforce. The model has attracted national attention; U.S. Secretary of State Arne Duncan said he was “inspired” by the program during a visit to the district last year.
