SAN DIEGO, October 10 - Hobsons, the education technology leader and company behind Naviance, joins education leaders today at the 2018 ALAS Education Summit, hosted by the Association of Latino Administrators & Superintendents. Hobsons’ sponsorship over the past two years represents its commitment to ALAS’s work in addressing challenges facing Latinos across the education system.
The summit, held October 10-13, provides a unique forum for educators to engage in meaningful discussions and identify solutions that can be applied throughout the industry. Multiple speakers, presentations, and workshops give attendees the opportunity to network and discuss innovative solutions to challenges found throughout the education industry.
“Naviance is proud to sponsor the 2018 ALAS Education Summit,” said Monica Morrell, General Manager of Naviance. “Each year, this summit provides invaluable time to focus on the specific challenges Latino students face throughout their educational journey. The Naviance team is committed to providing technology solutions that create equity and access for all.”
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.
