Redefining Success for Our Children: Madeline Levine Engages with NSI 2016 Participants
High school students in Dysart Unified School District in Maricopa County, Arizona, will use Naviance by Hobsons to work with their school counselors to identify their strengths, plan academic coursework, determine future career goals, and discover best-fit colleges. Students will also use Naviance to manage their Education and Career Action Plan (ECAP) process.
