As a school counselor, I feel it is important students interact with me in my office and in the classroom, as well as on campus.
Part of my mission to make sure I get the most information to the most students, I make small group presentations at least two times each school year. In the fall I typically meet with students in their English classes, in the spring I see them in History classes. These small group presentations consist of less than 15 students for more than 100 minutes.
Class presentations include (but are not limited to):
Each student receiving an individual printout of the grades & test scores they have earned to date in their high school career, including their current grade point averages.
Graduation; requirements, checklists & myths
How to check grades & test scores, THE PORTAL
Each student receives a Florida Next Trend College and Career Preparation Magazine, and a thorough review of its contents, including Bright Futures information and college/university expectations, deadlines and some projected costs. Information about career prep and money management is also included.
An activity to review information on scholarships, community service expectations, the difference between state universities, colleges, state colleges, vocational/trade schools and private institutions.
ACT vs SAT; how to sign up and the differences between the tests
