  • 8. NHPS Framework for Achieving College and Career Readiness: VISION Students learn through meaningful and coherent experiences that support their intellectual, emotional and physical development, and that these experiences must be created in individual classrooms, within the school as a whole, and extend beyond the school into their lives.
  • 9. NHPS Framework for Achieving College and Career Readiness: APPROACH Achieving college and career readiness requires a focus on both the academic & intellectual development and social & emotional development of students as well as explicit attention to building the skills and knowledge needed for the transition to college or career. Most importantly, the school experience must be coherent and personalized to address the needs and interests of each individual student. Family and community are essential partners in the success of students and should be engaged as such throughout the school experience.

  • 34. Wexler-Grant School Student Success Plan
  • 35. Implementation Strategies with Limited Technological Resources Being a school with limited technology resources was an accidental blessing for Wexler-Grant. Given that we did not have enough computers for students to complete Naviance assessments, etc., we began our program by laying a clear foundation and having conversations with our students during Advisory about what it means to work, the skills necessary to go to college and pursue a career, and the obstacles that people may encounter in the world of work.
  • 36. Implementation Strategies with Limited Technological Resources 1.If working in inner-city schools, assure that your approach is culturally relevant. Consider demographics and obstacles that our students may face in career and/or college options. 2.DO NOT BEGIN WITH THE COMPUTER. This is particularly important. Remember that Naviance is a tool to support a Student Success Plan, but is not the Student Success Plan itself. 3.Lay the groundwork: Particularly in the younger grades, it is important to assess where students are in terms of comprehending the realities of job market, college, pro-sports aspirations, etc.
  • 37. Implementation Strategies with Limited Technological Resources 4.If you do not have technology, try to avoid duplicating the technology, unless you know that you will NEVER have the technology. Students do not like to do things twice! 5.Consider separating groups by gender, which may diminish posturing, nervousness, etc. in front of people of other gender.
