Julie Conrad talked about the Oshkosh Area School District's program to make students college, career, and community ready upon graduation from high school, which includes programs in academics, financial processes, life and career schools, and career and life exploration.   She said the School District's goal is to provide and keep students/workers in the Northeast Wisconsin area.
