We encourage parents
and students to take part in this great learning opportunity.
There are over 50 different organizations, colleges, and tech programs from around the area who will be represented on Futures Day.
We want our students to explore their options. A great way to accomplish this is to have those representing different job fields, higher education and technical schools personally meet with our students. This learning opportunity is not only beneficial for our students, but it benefits those visiting our school. They will have the chance to meet with the regions’ most talented students as well as interacting with some of our future leaders.

One of the Goals of Mattoon in Motion is developing a thriving workforce that meets the needs of area employers and employees. As a community, there are several workforce opportunities which can help you or your child succeed.
Recently Mattoon in Motion workforce development committee surveyed many parents during registration at Mattoon High School. We asked five questions on the survey.
How will informed do you feel regarding the range of options available to their student after they complete high school?
How well informed do you feel regarding educational options available to their student (junior college university trade school, apprenticeships, etc.)
How well informed do you feel regarding scholarship opportunities available to your student?
How well informed do you feel regarding current career opportunities in the Mattoon area?
How well equipped do you feel to help your student make decisions on their next steps after high school?
From these survey results, we are developing ways to disseminate the needed information to the parents in the area.
Mattoon is heading in the right direction! As you may have noticed there is talk of new development all around town .
The bike symbols around town are a new addition to our community. Construction is progressing on the new Marshalls site at the Cross County Mall and the newest development announcement is a Hilton Garden Inn with an onsite restaurant and an adjoining conference space are in the works.
Along with Elevate CCIC, Inc. (Elevate) Co-working spaces/ Business incubator and innovation center our goals of growing the city of Mattoon and the surrounding area are becoming a reality.
