The Teays Valley Local School District recently received a $10,000 grant from the Teays Valley Educational Foundation to be used to help purchase the Naviance College and Career Readiness Program, which will be used by all Teays Valley high school and middle school students next school year.
As part of Orange Unified School District’s initiative to graduate college and career-ready students, students begin Career Exploration and Educational Planning in middle school and build on that foundation throughout their four years of high school. To support this College and Career Planning at the secondary level, OUSD has adopted the software program Naviance and can connect each student’s passions to a possible career path and then work with them to create an individual plan to achieve their professional goals fulfilling the District’s mission.
According to Rim of the World Unified School District in California, “Naviance works to encourage students’ interest in college from early on in their high school career and tracks their GPA, high school progress, A-G requirements, and more. In addition, it also has access to hundreds of colleges and universities around the world for students to begin researching.” Rim of the World is expanding their Naviance implementation from High Schools to Middle Schools in school year 2017-2018.
Strategic issues — from the UK’s Referendum on the European Union to the US Presidential election last year — have the potential to influence where international students choose to study.
