Wallingford’s middle and high schools have partnered with Naviance as we work with students and parents to ensure that our graduates are college and career ready as they move beyond high school. Naviance’s Family Connection, an Internet based tool that allows students and families to access online resources and collaborate on college and career readiness activities.
Using Family Connection, students can research colleges, scholarships, careers, enrichment programs, and courses in one web-based location. They can also create individual success plans that can be linked to college and career readiness. Students can also use Family Connection to request transcripts and teacher recommendations. In addition, students can complete career and personality assessments, create and track academic and personal goals, and perform tasks related to post secondary planning.
We hope that our students make regular use of the Family Connection. During the course selection process, students can use the program to develop long range plans of study that are based in individual student’s anticipated career aspirations. Research tells us that students who have clearly defined, long term plans of study during high school are far better prepared to meet the demands of college and career following graduation.
