Starting this week all high school students and their parents in the Long Beach Unified School District will receive customized College Readiness Guides.  The guides – based upon each student’s course history, grade point average, test scores and other factors – provide an overview of readiness for various California public colleges and universities, along with suggested next steps for students and parents. The aim of the seven-page reports is to take the mystery out of college preparation.  The guides were created with feedback from parents who wanted practical, “how-to” information on college readiness. View a sample guide. Students will be able to view their own reports online in their StudentVUE portal.  Parents can review their children’s reports in the ParentVUE portal. 

 

Join us on Tuesday, October 17th at 6:00 pm in the Lakewood High School Library for a Parent Workshop on How to Use Your College Readiness Guide.  Our College Counseling Team will be ready to answer your questions and to walk you through these how-to information guides.

 

PTSA meeting will follow at 7:00 pm.
