Creating or expanding family focused sites for postsecondary planning helps families explore postsecondary options together, rather than having the school be the sole information keeper. The NYC Department of Education’s K-12 college and career planning site is approachable and replicable for other schools or districts.
These family inclusive suggestions for career exploration, organized by school level, increase true family engagement and shared understanding of their student’s options.
