Tips you can share with high school students:
- Keep your grades up—this will affect future opportunities now more than ever before.
- Request tutoring if you need it. Your teachers are there to help. If you know your grades are falling behind, catch up while the gap is minimal.
- Visit your counselor to help you plan next steps after high school.
- Take AP, IB, and dual credit courses, as well as AP and IB exams. You can earn credit for college and save money and time later.
- Stress the importance of attending school regularly and how it relates to college and future careers.
REVIEWING OPTIONS with YOUR CHILD:
Entering ninth-graders and their parents will have the opportunity to review the graduation requirements, endorsement options, and college readiness information with a high school counselor or school administrator. Parents will review and sign a paper copy of the student’s personal graduation plan.
