Developing a Shared Agenda
Involving Others and Maximizing Professionals to Improve College and Career Readiness
WACAC Share-Learn-Connect Conference,
University of San Francisco, 2014
How do we get from here...
All studentsleave high school college and career ready
Common Core State Standards specify K-12 expectations for college and career readiness
...and what can Counselors do to help?
Q: What do college preparation and college attendance look like at your school?
MOST IMPORTANT: Form relationships with teachers and have a mutual respect for each other
PUT YOURSELF OUT THERE AND LET THEM KNOW YOU WILL HELP THEM
By collaborating, all seniors now complete the
Guidance SR Survey as a pre-writing assignment
for their personal statements.
My Two Main Sources:
This event was not the best attended in the past
Marquee, All Call, and Weekly Email Messages, Listed on Website
Multiple messages to staff about having students attend,
presented at Spanish speaking meeting, asked counselors to
write individual messages to their community college students
to attend, had Parent Center call Spanish parents to come
Biggest turn out ever over 200 people that included equal
numbers of Spanish and English speaking families
