Our Kids
  • 92.39 of our seniors who graduated in 2004 told
    us they were going on to further education. If
    only it was true……we do know that 58.38 of the
    class of 2003 actually went on to post-secondary
    education from our Student Outcomes Study
  • When asked if they had a developed career plan
    27.87 said no.
  • 31.92 said they had not even applied to college.
  • 20.44 of the students reported that they were
    going to attend a U of M Campus. 11.1 did.

Nationally
  • Data from the classes of 1972, 1982 and 1992
    tell us that only 45 to 49 of students who
    enter college and earn more than 10 credits
    actually earn a BA Degree
  • Many even fail to earn 10 credits
  • For students with GPAs in high school of C or
    lower the chances that they will earn 1 college
    credit is less than 50-50.
  • Data is from the American Educator article
    entitled Its Time To Tell the Kids If You
    Dont Do Well in High School, You Wont Do Well
    in College (or on the job)

Data - College Readiness
  • In 2000, the percent of SPPS students who
    required remediation when they attended
    institutions of higher education was between 37
    and 56 percent.
  • Depending upon High School
  • MnSCU Research and Planning and University
    of MN Office of Institutional Research and
    Reporting, 2002

12
Our Kids
  • When we surveyed 2877 ninth grade students last
    year, 41.4 of them ranked Getting help to
    create a plan for high school and beyond as
    their 1 response
  • The 2 most popular response was Learning how to
    recognize their interests and abilities

13
So, How Will The Six Year Plan Help?
  • Wouldnt it be nice if every high school could
    say that every student who graduates in 2008 and
    beyond will have an up-to-date, compelling vision
    of their desired future and a detailed, viewable
    plan to get there?

14
Why Design a Six Year Plan?
  • Today many of us live hectic, highly stressful
    lives. Nothing seems permanent. Nothing can be
    taken for granted not our jobs, accumulated
    possessions, not even our closest relationships.
  • So why plan for a future when everything seems so
    up for grabs? Why not just fly by the seat of
    our pants, making decisions as they come,
    one-by-one?
  • Simply because even if such an Ill-take-things-a
    s-they-come life orientation worked at one time,
    it no longer does.

15
Why Design a Six Year Plan?
  • Without a compelling vision of our desired future
    and a detailed plan to get there, we are likely
    to take any fork-in-the-road that seems appealing
    at the moment . . . or we get bogged down,
    frustrated with our lives, without a vision of
    the future.
  • Today, we usually need long lead-times to upgrade
    our interests, skills, and competencies just to
    stay current and competitive in the workplace.
    Flying by the seat of our pants simply doesnt
    work anymore.
  • Thats why an up-to-date, compelling vision of
    our desired future and a detailed plan to get
    there are critical necessities for a successful,
    personally rewarding lifes journey.

Goals of the Tools for High School Students
and 6 Year Planning Website
  • Motivate students through an association with
    career and life planning. Too many students feel
    school is boring and irrelevant
  • Create a culture of high aspirations. We must
    instill the belief that college is possible early
    on
  • Provide students with a tool to help design a 6
    Year Plan. A place to tell us about their dreams
    and ambitions. The things we used to talk about
    at the dinner table
  • Increase the number of students who are engaged
    in what they are doing in high school and how it
    connects to their future. Too many students
    follow the path of least resistance that take
    them through a series of disconnected classes
  • Increase graduation rates for all students. We
    have to do better

17
Goals of the Tools for High School Students
and 6 Year Planning Website
  • Increase the number of students who go on to
    school after high school. Low skills and low
    wages or….
  • Increase each students knowledge of career
    options. What are my options?, They told us that
    this is the area they want help with in the
    survey….
  • Increase the number of students who have
    achievable individual career plans. A plan that
    makes sense….
  • Increase the congruence between career plans and
    the courses students take. Students need to know
    the correlation between the skills required for
    high school and those required for success in
    college
  • Increase all stakeholders involvement with
    students and what they are doing in high school.
    Kids want to talk about their futures but are
    enough people asking the right questions?
