    In the fall of 2016, South St. Paul Public Schools partnered with the ISD 197 (West St. Paul, Mendota Heights, Eagan) and the Inver Grove Heights school districts, to share resources and expand career and college readiness (CCR) pathways for all students. This TriDistrict collaborative effort creates opportunities for students to explore different careers and learn about the many ways to earn college credits, degrees, or job-ready certifications while in high school.
