Superintendents to Award Scholarships to Students Demonstrating Key Indicators of College Readiness
Superintendents share perspectives on college and career readiness in conference panel and new research brief
"Dear Gonzales ISD School and Community Family, Happy New Year 2018! We wish you a wonderful year ahead filled with many blessings. Our early days back have been super busy, productive, and enjoyable. Students are working hard on school studies, participating as a member of a team in their organizations or athletic games and engaged in many goal-setting opportunities. Naviance is a wonderful assist in this area as we work to provide effective support for students as they plan the most conducive path of courses toward their career goals."
We're excited to work with our new partners in Pittsburgh Public Schools!
"After Stevenson High School's Class of 2017 received diplomas last spring, approximately 97 percent of the students went on to attend college – with nine out of 10 enrolling in a four-year school, according to a new report."
City officials announced Wednesday that they will make Hobsons Naviance accessible to 11,500 middle- and high school students. Officials at Pittsburgh Public Schools hope Naviance will help increase graduation rates, assist families with financial aid applications and track college applications among students at city schools.
The Hudson City Schools started a program last year called College 101. Jill Okey, a counselor with the district, started this mandatory program for high school juniors. “Once a month ... juniors attend large group sessions on various topics relating to the college application process,” said Shelley Ladauto, guidance department head at the high school. “They are required to complete assignments on their Chromebooks through Naviance. This is the most comprehensive program we have for college readiness. In addition, colleges routinely visit the high school and can answer student questions in a small group setting."
PPS joins more than 40 percent of the largest 25 urban school districts and more than one-third of the 300 largest school districts using Naviance

First National presented a $5,000 check to the Westlake City Schools last week. The money will be used to support a college and career readiness software program, and the expansion of the Beekeeping Club Project. About $2,000 of the donation will be used for the Naviance program, which is a college and career readiness program designed to help students identify their strengths, interests and steps to achieving their goals. The program also allows individual learning plans to be aligned to student goals.
