College and Career Advising
Did you know moment??
That EVERY 7-12 grade student has an assigned college and career advisor?? You and your student can contact them anytime and talk about what's next, how do we get set up to reach future goals and what do we do if we aren't sure what to do or how to access opportunities???
That was a lot to process, but the bottom line is this: Students and parents need help navigating the "system" of higher education and career planning. The state helps our district by providing people to do that. Don't hesitate to call and visit with them! Make an appointment to meet them at the school or stalk them til they help you! (You won't have to go that far).
They LOVE to help and they know EVERYTHING (nearly everything).
NEXT STEPS after high school is not just college. It's anything and everything that leads to a successful career! They can help with it all.
