 Counselors to Visit with All 9th Graders

Tomorrow the counselors will be meeting with all 9th grade students during their Geography class. Students will receive information about graduation requirements, career pathways, ways to get college credit in high school and ways to pay for college. This will be a review of the information that students received in their individual College & Career Readiness meetings they had last year with their counselor. Please review these materials with your student; it's never too early to start planning!
