Naviance by Hobsons Releases Industry Report on CCLR Funding
Insights for Funding College, Career and Life Readiness Initiatives
ARLINGTON, VA - January 29, 2019 - Hobsons, the education technology leader and company behind Naviance, today released a new industry report, College, Career & Life Readiness Budget Trends 2018. This survey brief provides a summary of priorities in CCLR funding and reporting, as well as strategies to help districts creatively fund and report on CCLR initiatives.
In recent years, schools and districts across the country have diversified sources of funding for college, career and life readiness (CCLR) initiatives. The CCLR Budget Trends report provides an analysis of CCLR funding sources and category spending at nearly 300 schools and districts nationwide. K-12 administrators can use the report to identify funding sources, compare current spending distributions, and make adjustments as needed.
“As college, career and life readiness initiatives are expanded upon in districts and schools across the country, it is becoming even more imperative for administrators to find alternative funding sources for their programs,” said Monica Morrell, General Manager of Naviance by Hobsons. “It is the mission of the Naviance team to assist school and district administrators to establish effective initiatives, but also to find funding to best support their students’ future success.”
Naviance provides information and resources that enable school counselors, teachers, students, and parents to engage in meaningful conversations about how to assess a student’s options after high school. It also allows them to explore, apply to, and enroll in a postsecondary path that is a best fit for the student, based on education and career goals, learning style, and personal preferences regarding where and how they would like to continue their education. The platform arms students and their families with information on the true cost of a particular college, based on their own family income, and allows them to explore scholarship and financial aid opportunities.
