We have 14 coaches serving 15 school districts this year. Schools can opt for different grade level support between 6-12 grades.
. Our goal is to cover all schools in Crawford and Richland County in grades 6-12, making sure they are accessing OhioMeansJobs and learning about their career options and requirements.
Our coaches are former school counselors, teachers, administrators and a coach with a business background. The Career Coaches are seeking to follow the plan set forth by the state of Ohio as outline by Career Connections on the Ohio Department of Education's website and meet the expectations of the local school district regarding those requirements.
Cheryl Cronbaugh is the SPARC Career Coach Coordinator working directly with schools and coaches to seek to attain our goals. A retired educator, Cheryl meets with business and industry leaders to hear their needs and concerns, serves on the talent development committee and then reports back to coaches translating this information through training and field trips.
