Junior Parent Night for College Planning

This program was held on Monday, October 15th. For those who missed it, or who might like to review the information covered, you can access several documents, below: Parent Handout, Slide Show Presentations, and a Form to assist in organizing.

 

An e-mail was sent on Sunday, October 21st to the primary parent/guardian e-mail accounts (pulled from powerschool) and to junior students with unique registration codes to utilize Naviance Student. People who are already registered received a separate notification on the same day. Parents and students each have their own access codes. Students can edit and use all the resources. Parents have lower levels of access to aid in the transition of students leading the way in their post-high school plans.

 

If you have any questions, please contact us in the CCRC or contact your child's counselor.
