Spokane School District joins GO CAPS career exploration program

Spokane School District joins GO CAPS career exploration program


Springfield, Mo. – The Spokane R-VII School District has joined the Greater Ozarks Centers for Advanced Professional Studies (GO CAPS), a career exploration program for high school juniors and seniors.

Spokane joins 12 area school districts in the program which will start its second year in August.

GO CAPS combines hands-on career experiences and classroom learning by partnering students and employers on real-life projects. At its core, GO CAPS is designed to expose students to the wide variety of career and post-secondary educational pathways that exist within the Springfield region.

Students choose from four strands: Entrepreneurship and Business, Engineering and Manufacturing, Medicine and Health Care and Technical Solutions.

Students meet for 2.5 hour blocks each school day at business locations in Springfield, working on real projects and interacting with mentors and instructors from business partners around the region. Students receive both high school and optional dual college credit.

The Springfield Area Chamber of Commerce manages the GO CAPS program. The effort is a collaboration between area public school districts and job creators from leading sectors of the region’s economy.

Despite strong technical and professional training programs, an increasing number of business leaders report they face a significant disconnect between the skills and talent available and their rapidly changing workforce needs. GO CAPS is positioned to prepare students earlier and connect them with existing opportunities in the Springfield region.

Students interested in enrolling for the 2016-17 school year should contact high school counselor DeAnnShort, 417-443-3502 or For more information, contact Dr. Jared Terry, director of curriculum, instruction and assessment, Spokane R-VII School District, 417-443-3502 or
