  • Program: not random acts of guidance, but a purposeful programDefine—college ready: Minneapolis Public School students who are college and career ready possess the knowledge, skills and habits to succeed in college level courses and to persist through graduation towards their career goal. This means that:Students have a clear vision and plan for continuing education and training related to the career area of their choiceStudents have the skills to navigate the systems necessary for success in post-secondary and career training institutionsStudents transition to college without the need for remedial courseworkStudents have the individual determination and perseverance to thrive in post-secondary institutions and the local, national and global workforce
  • Guiding students through these questions:MLP is about the process and not about pigeon-holing students. Students, especially in grades 6-10, are asked to and guided through career, college and self exploration with the understanding and expectation that they will grow and change through this process.6-8 Expose to options—I don’t know what I don’t know.Exploring the idea of career options beyond NBA, NFL, American Idol, doctor, & lawyerGrades 9-12Narrowing the funnel….
  • Heart of our work as school counselors and the ASCA model
  • Students develop who they are as they develop their interests; this will modify as they grow and are exposed to new thoughts, ideas, and opportunities.
  • Revamped
  • 4 milestones, with a focus on successful transition1 milestone to introduce career exploration
  • 5 milestones to meet students where they are developmentally:7th grade—learning who they are and where they belong7th grade College/Career focus
  • Grade 8:Preparation for high school transitionSelecting a high schoolLooking at career pipelinesUnderstanding what it means to be a 9th graderAcademicallySociallyUnderstanding the systems related to high schoolPre-reqsCredits grad requirementsAll 8th graders take the EXPLORE test
  • 6 milestones focusing on successful transition to HSMore specific career exploration
  • 5 milestonesContinued exploration of self and career, wanting students move through the funnel toward a more concrete/defined understanding of self and career aspirationsFocus on PLAN as predictor for ACT and the role of ACT in college admissionsUse of PLAN as predictor for success in AP/IB courseworkNote: always subject to change
  • 5 milestones where we really start connecting the dotsAsk students to use their self reflection and career exploration/aspiration to inform their college search process:What major might fit my career goals?What college campus will fit my lifestyle/personality?What am I passionate about and what college affords me the opportunity to explore that?Are the courses and extracurriculars I am currently experiencing helping me to meet my post-secondary goals?
  • Grade 12: rubber hits the roadThis year is the bottom of the funnel, and the exploration is put into action:Students narrow the college search and complete applicationsEnsure that grad requirements are metComplete steps necessary to transition to next step:FAFSA/scholarshipMeet with employersMeet with recruiters, etc.FAFSA Pilot Project Conversations around financial literacy—under review
  • Resources must follow our priorities (MPS; state)
  • PBIS, Response to Intervention—green zone: all studentsGreen Zone – Classroom presentations (yellow zone: targeted: groups; red zone: individual—one-on-one work)ALL students – ELL; Special Education>differentation, alternative/appropriate milestones for special populations
  • Program/tasks: green zoneGoal/to-do: yellow: targeted students
