Career Pathways in the Bullock Creek Schools provide students with a focus and foundation for their learning experiences that not only meet their academic potential and career interests, but lead to lifelong learning and achievement.
Career Pathways are six broad groupings of careers that share similar characteristics and whose employment requirements call for many common interests, strengths, and competencies. The groupings encompass the entire spectrum of career options, providing opportunities for all students and all ability levels. Within each Pathway, students may select a sequence of courses which provides both focus and direction for their learning experience.
The six Career Pathways are:
Arts & Communication
Business, Management, Marketing and Technology
Engineering, Manufacturing and Industrial Technology
Human Services & Education
Natural Resources and Agriscience
At Bullock Creek High School, students are able to select a Pathway and then create an individual plan for their four high school years. Students work individually with a counselor to create a specific and unique four year plan, also known as an Education Development Plan (EDP).
Comprehensive Guidance and Counseling
The Bullock Creek Schools Comprehensive Guidance and Counseling Program assures that all students, over a lifetime, will:
Learn to Learn
Learn to Work
Learn to Live
Comprehensive Guidance and Counseling is an integral part of the education program that relies on the cooperation and support of students, parent(s)/families, teachers, administrators, support staff, and the community. The curriculum for this program has three content areas:
Knowledge of Self and Others
Career Exploration and Development
Students and Parents can get help in making informed education and career decisions by checking out the recently updated Pathfinder, Michigan's online career exploration tool that allows users to explore in-demand careers and the degree credentials needed to pursue them.

Developing programs that promote a healthy life-style and build a positive school climate
Presenting classroom lessons on such issues as personal growth, self-esteem, and substance abuse
Teaching students important skills such as goal-setting, effective communication, and time management
Consulting with parents and teachers to help students have a successful school experience
Advising students on class selections and academic opportunities
Promoting career education and helping students plan for their future
Counseling is a personal and private interaction between a professionally trained counselor and a student or a small group of students. Counselors strive to help students explore their thoughts, goals, and behaviors, which can add to increased insight and understanding of themselves. A counselor helps students individually and in small groups with academic, career, and personal concerns. The focus of school counseling is to provide short-term, solution-based assistance. When necessary, parents or guardians will be encouraged to utilize outside agencies for more ongoing student support. Counseling meetings are scheduled by appointment during school hours. A student may stop by the counseling office to request a meeting with his/her counselor. A pass will be sent out to the student with the date and time of the appointment. Parents may schedule a meeting with the counselor by contacting the counseling office (989-631-2340) to set up a mutually convenient time.
When a student shares information, it will remain confidential unless:
The student informs the counselor of neglect, abuse, or another violation of the Child Protection Act.
The student and/or the counselor determine that the information needs to be shared with a parent, a guardian, or an agency.
The counselor is concerned that the student may cause harm to self or others.
The counselor has been directed by a judge to inform the court.
When a teacher or a parent shares information regarding a student with a counselor, this information will be used and shared with appropriate school personnel only with consent to assist the student’s functioning in school.
