I just learned from the counselors here at HHS that they have taken their tasks onto the connected electronic world. Our Director of Guidance, Ms. Mottola, has sent letters home to the parents introducing them to Family Connection from Naviance. According to the letter, this is, “a Web-based service designed especially for students and parents. Family Connection is a comprehensive website that you can use to help in making decisions about course selection, colleges and careers”.
You’ll need a registration code in order to log in and use the program, but the information available to you is very impressive. The site allows users to build an online resume, view their GPA and school rank, as well as maintain and manage their college application deadlines. Other bundled features allow students to research and compare colleges according to SAT scores, available majors, and a variety of statistical and historical data. This looks like it is a great tool, but only if you actually use it.
Anyone who wants more information about the site or needs a registration code should contact Guidance Services at HHS. The phone number is 978.374.5700, extension 1133.
