This year, Chardon local schools is initiating a new program in the counseling department designed to help students begin to navigate and track their career and college pathways. Naviance is a comprehensive K-12 college and career readiness solution that helps districts and schools align student strengths and interests to postsecondary goals, improving student outcomes and connecting learning to life. We will be using this new program consistently throughout their years at the middle and high school to explore vocational options, set goals, search colleges, track progress, and to help connect them with resources that will help them to succeed.Family Connections/Naviance Link
Sixth Graders will focus on logging into the system, start to build their profiles by completing the CareerKey, and complete a brief student survey.
Seventh Graders will log into the system, start to explore different types of careers when they take the Career Cluster Finder, save clusters of careers so they can investigate various career pathways, and complete a brief student survey.
Eighth Graders will log into the system, and focus primarily on narrowing down career path options by using data from the CareerKey and Cluster Finder to help with scheduling high school classes. They will also start to build a resume so they can maintain records of all their extracurricular activities and achievements throughout high school.
