Tied to Helping Students Prepare for Post-Secondary Education
All these have to do with preparing students to prepare to stay in high school, graduate, and go on to some kind of post-secondary education.
First, I would like all 8th graders from now on to have the opportunity to visit a college campus.
I would also like them to go through the Dependable Strengths process, that helps them identify their strengths, and their good experiences, which can help them in the process of identifying a subject for their senior project.
I would also like them to take a test that helps them prepare for their ACT test they have to take as a junior in order to graduate from high school.
And I would like them to have access to a program called eCIS, that gives them and their parents an abundant amount of information on colleges, careers and financial aid options.
I would also like to start a "Parent Academy" program that has parents teaching other parents about information about how to get their students prepared to get a post-secondary education.
So now it is time to write a plan, and get it done!!
