Using Technology to Create a College-Going Culture “We are very proud of the streamlined effort afforded by Naviance to enable our office to be more technology driven” Rhonda Ramirez, Counselor
The Flagstaff Counseling Department uses the support of technology to continually evolve. For the past nine years, Flagstaff improved its college and career readiness culture by implementing Naviance.
Studies show that parent involvement in a student’s education can be one of the biggest factors affecting success during and after high school. And while critically important, schools often struggle to get parents involved. Limited staff time, a lack of resources to provide parents, or uncertainty about how to engage families are just a few contributing factors. One district in Connecticut, however, has seen success in fostering collaboration and engaging parents using the college and career planning and scholarship search tools included in Naviance.
When Colorado enacted a requirement in 2009 that required all students in grades 9-12 to create and manage an Individual Career & Academic Plan (ICAP), Jeffco turned to Naviance – a one-stop solution that brings all the pieces of an effective college and career readiness program together.
Before implementing Naviance, Boothbay had a 52% college application rate. Through the use of Naviance’s college search and application tools, they saw an increase to 94% of seniors applying to college, an 80% increase in one year.
Since implementing Naviance, Adams 12 increased its graduation rate by 12%, and data collected through Naviance helped the district justify spending to restore counseling positions that had been lost due to budget cuts.
