    High School & Beyond Plan

    Seattle Public Schools utilizes Naviance, an electronic college and career exploration and planning software, to support a system-wide approach to High School and Beyond Plans.  The Naviance required tasks are aligned to the state requirements for the High School and Beyond Plan (HSPB State Requirements).

    The High School and Beyond Plan will:

    • Start in 8th grade to support the transition to high school.
    • Be electronic and follow students if they change schools within SPS.
    • Be aligned to academic goals and career interests.
    • Be accessible to both students and families online (parent accounts will be available in the 2019-2020 school year).
    • Include self-reflection, goal setting, interest and career inventories, post-secondary research, and resume development.
    • Be updated and reviewed on an annual basis.
