We Have Choices!
Encourage your child to explore their
post-secondary opportunities with
Choices Explorer and Choices® Planner
Amarillo ISD is pleased to provide a career exploration service for students.
Choices Explorer/Planner is an online program that helps your child explore a wide variety of career options and make plans to achieve his or her goals -- from school or from home!
A motivated student who chooses a pathway is a more focused, achievement-oriented student. This passion and enthusiasm can lead to better study habits, better grades and greater course involvement.
Does your child have a solid plan for the future? Choices Explorer/Planner helps students realize a new world of opportunities by bringing to life more occupations than ever. Over 900 career profiles will engage your child in career exploration as he or she discovers endless possibilities right at their fingertips.
Choices Explorer/Planner makes career exploration simple – it’s as easy as choosing a favorite school subject, or answering a few questions about your interests and skills. Your Portfolio allows your child to record exploration results so he or she may return to the information later on.
Choices Explorer/Planner shows students their potential for more possibilities than they could ever imagine. Please encourage your child to explore all his or her options by using Choices Explorer/Planner.
