  4. 4. Grant Deadline – January 23, 2009 Project Title: Student Success Center Successful Communication Initative Project Narrative: (page 1) The Student Success Center (SSC) is in a central location in our high school and is bustling with activity-- averaging 435 student visits per week. Each week we host multiple visits from colleges, the military, professional guests for our Lunch & Learn series, hold informational seminars to share information about career planning, course selection, college application processes, how to write a resume, how to find an internship, job acquisition support services, etc. We also promote special opportunities for our students at the SSC. Students learn about Pathways field trips to area businesses and to local colleges at the SSC. They also learn about community service opportunities. The funding request for this project is from Media Literacy. We expect to involve our students, staff and guests to interact and create using this medium. The goals of this project are as follows: (1) to serve as a communication center, a smart board will be placed in an area where students can see it and it's messages (2) the smart board will be avaliable to guests to use as they talk to students (this will work especially well for our college representative visits who can show students their websites and how to apply to college and our Lunch & Learn guests will be able to use PPT presentations or navigate the web to show students current workplace projects (3) be a tool for students to use as they present (4) be a tool for counselors as they work with small groups (i.e. training for use of Bridges and Naviance Family Connection--see attached), (5) be avaliable to small groups of students working on project planning. The platform will be used daily as an information source for students to observe as they walk by the SSC and look into the space. It will be used by college reps, professional speakers and staff presenting on an as needed basis. Success will be measured by increased activity in the SCC (student attendance and number of functions hosted). The functions and activities in the SSC help HHHS comply with the PA Career Education and Work (CEW) standards (www.pacareerstandards.com). All functions and activities in the center support and hold together the scope and sequencing of our CEW program. The SSC activities and programing connect all of the pieces of our program from 9th and 10th grade CEW standards infusion to the 11th grade Pathways Seminar and 12th grade community learning experiences such as Internship and Service Learning (see attachments). We use the Bridges program (www.bridges.com) for our students to build electronic portfolios. The portfolio is started freshman year and is worked on every year through high school graduation. We expect to see personal growth statements and reflections that will result, in part, to the exposures and activities students have had in the SSC. Our students will all write a personal transition plan explaining their post- high school plans and how those goals will be achieved. The plans will be presented to their teachers, parents and school counselors. For this project we are asking for: (1) NEC NP200 - DLP projector, (2) SMART Board 500 Interactive Whiteboard and (3) Balt Rolz 2 Mobile Conference Center. This equipment will allow for the presentations and uses described above. The moblie conference center will allow for movement of projection area and provide security. 4
