Goal

  • Provide a vendor developed and hosted system to senior high school students to assist with course planning, and selection of post-secondary education options including application, scholarships, and direct linkages to colleges and universities

    Objectives

  • Current in-district options for course planning and college planning are largely manual and require significant counselor intervention. ConnectEDU would provide a portal where students can leverage their existing course credit information into a full featured post-secondary educational planning and selection tool.
