What is the Naviance Succeed Technology Program?:

What is the Naviance Succeed Technology Program? Accelerate student success with Naviance Succeed. Every student should graduate career and college ready. Naviance Succeed is an innovative, high-impact solution that becomes part of the fabric of the schools where it's deployed - linking students and their success coaches in pursuit of shared goals. Naviance Succeed promotes college and career readiness through increased collaboration, rigor and transparency. It is a comprehensive online solution designed to achieve the desired outcomes while measuring progress against milestones. Many school districts have assessment or curriculum systems in place. These tools are typically educator-centric systems rather than student-centric systems. Naviance Succeed is a student system. Students are the center of the Succeed system with access, processing and reporting functions for the critical stakeholders (e.g., parents, school leaders, peers and counselors) that make-up the student’s support network. Naviance Succeed integrates tools for planning across four critical areas into a single powerful solution. These four functional areas are combined with robust analytics, powerful communication tools and a student/family portal to give you the ability to raise accountability and performance across a number of key indicators leading to increased engagement, improvements in academic performance and overall workplace and college readiness.

College Planning Naviance creates and supports a college-going culture by encouraging all students to explore post-secondary education options. Students and parents are given valuable insight into the college admissions process.

Family Connection Overview for Roslyn HS:

Family Connection Overview for Roslyn HS There are a few sections of the Roslyn High School Family Connection with which we urge you to become familiar: “About Me” and “About College”. About Me These are sections you might find useful: My Profile – Includes basic biographical data and grade point averages. My Resume - By completing this resume with information about your accomplishments and talents, you can help us get a better understanding of how to help you effectively describe yourself to colleges. It may also help match you with local and state scholarship opportunities. My Colleges – As you find colleges that interest you, we recommend that you add them to your list of “Colleges That I’m Considering”. If one of your colleges of interest visits Roslyn High School, you will automatically receive an e-mail alerting you to the date and time of their visit. Also, as you apply to colleges, you will track the status of your application under “Colleges to which I’m Applying”.

Family Connection Overview for Roslyn HS:

Family Connection Overview for Roslyn HS About College College Search – See page 18 for more information on how to conduct a college search. College Lookup – Start here to research a specific college. We always recommend that students visit the college’s individual website for the most up-to-date information. There is a direct link to the website on each college’s Naviance homepage. College Match - This tool will allow you to use historical gpa and test score information about students from RHS and their college applications to match you with colleges that you may want to consider adding to your list. Please note that there are many factors which can affect admissions decisions and the results of this search do NOT guarantee in any way whether or not you will be accepted at a particular college. If a particular college never appears in the results, it may be because no one from Roslyn has ever applied to it. College Compare – This tool allows you to compare average grade point averages and test scores for accepted students from RHS at up to ten colleges. School averages are displayed in green when your number is higher and in red when your number is lower. Your PSAT score, if available, has been converted to the equivalent SAT score and compared to the average single SAT score of an accepted student. The column labeled "Accept" shows the number of students accepted out of the number of students that applied. Scattergrams – This amazing tool allows you to visually see how you compare to RHS students who have applied to a particular college based on your grade point average and ACT or SAT score. Acceptance History – To see how many RHS students have applied and enrolled at all colleges click here. Visit Schedule – College admission representatives visit RHS throughout the school year, especially in the fall, to meet directly with interested students. To see what colleges have scheduled visits to Roslyn, click here. Students may click on “sign up” next to the college name to receive an email that reminds them of the upcoming visit. We also list local college fairs on this page, and students can click on “sign up” to see what colleges will be attending that fair. Scholarship List – Click here for a complete listing of scholarships of which we receive notice. Many of these scholarships are from local, community, or state organizations. Scholarship Match – Based on information in your profile, your resume, or your game plan, scholarships are matched with your qualifications. The more information you complete in Family Connection, the better the matches. You may also want to explore the resources under “From Your School”: Under “resources” you will find links to a variety of websites related to the college process.

Implications of the Technology:

Implications of the Technology In our high tech society that can be data and results driven, Naviance offers just that for counselors, teachers, students and parents. It gives counselors one tool to track student progress, see multiple streams of data in one place, and see charts and graphs of student success and college admissions. (All in one place!) Counselors and teachers can easily guide students through its use and encourage their students and parents to get on family connection and be part of the planning and college selection process. Counselors can also use the data from Naviance to help evaluate their career/college planning program with easy to obtain and analyze results.

Restrictions and Reservations of Use :

Restrictions and Reservations of Use To start Naviance can seem like a daunting task, which turns many counselors off. Once initial student data is loaded into the program, it is really just about getting the word out to students and parents about it, along with training them how to use it or creating online tutorials. Naviance provides training workshops for schools. Programs can also be customized, schools do not need to purchase everything (i.e.: a middle school might have career exploration and course selection; whereas a HS will have that and more college preparation options). It is an expensive program, but when used and implemented to its fullest potential the results prove very worth it.

The Future?:

The Future? The great thing about Naviance is that it gets kids involved with the decision making of their future. They take ownership and pride in their choices and they see how their choices impact their lives. I like that it is a great conversation starter for counselors and students and it can help them really understand their high school years and beyond. In the future I see it growing with the needs and technology of the day, not being outdated shortly.
