I am pleased to introduce a new means of Academic Planning. Our school has recently purchased Course Manager from Naviance, a Web-based service designed to help streamline the academic advising and course registration processes. Course Manager works with Family Connection, a customized website designed especially for our students and parents. In addition to academic planning, you can use Family Connection to help in making decisions about your post-secondary plans.
Through the Family Connection interface, Course Manager will allow you to:
¨ Get involved in the planning and advising process – Build a resume, complete on-line surveys, and manage timelines and deadlines about college and careers.
¨ Create academic plans – Use the online course catalog to create a course plan for review with your child and school staff.
¨ Plan for post-secondary success – set short and long term goals and complete tasks related to career and college planning. Explore career cluster to find out knowledge, skills, activities and salaries of careers.
¨ Research colleges – Explore up to date information on colleges throughout the city, state, country and the world. In high school, compare GPA, standardized test scores, and other statistics to actual historical data for students who have applied and been admitted in the past. In high school, find out which colleges are visiting your school and sign up to attend those sessions.
