Task 1: Update Contact information

Throughout the school year, the High School and Beyond Plan Department (HSBP) checks students' portfolios for task completion. Sometimes, especially for students in Grade 12, we need to be able to reach out to students about a task that may need to be updated in their HSBP portfolio. Students, please update your contact information by using this link to jump directly in to the Update Contact Form: http://bit.ly/3c9QQ09

Task 2: Four Year Course Plan - Planning Your Schedule

A 4-year course plan that meets state and local graduation requirements, aligns with career and educational goals, and documents a students' chosen graduation pathway(s) is a required element of the HSBP portfolio. Completing a 4-year course plan in the HSBP portfolio must be completed in addition to adding course requests in Qmlativ for the 2021/2022 School Year.

Task 3: Learn about Federal and State Financial Aid

One of the HSBP requirements is to share information on federal and state financial aid programs that help students pay for postsecondary (2 year, technical, or 4 year college) programs. First, watch this short video introduction to financial aid.

NOTE: Do not file the FAFSA or the WASFA until

October 1st of Grade 12

NEXT: Students, please read through the Financial Aid information in your HSBP portfolio and certify that you received the information by clicking the button next to the “I understand the Financial Aid opportunities available to me” statement.

Task 4: Take the Interventions and Supports Survey

Interventions and academic support, courses, or both, that enable students to meet the high school graduation requirements, must be documented in students' HSBP portfolio.

  • Counseling for “on track” on-time graduation plan
  • Academic interventions with frequent progress checks
  • School counseling connection for social/emotional supports
  • Dual credit course (AP, IB, CI, College in the HS, Running Start, CTE Dual Credit)
  • Career and technical equivalency course
  • Transition course (Bridge to College Math and/or English)
  • Credit recovery course
  • Remedial course
  • Tutoring/Mentoring
  • Parent/guardian/teacher/counselor conference
  • Attendance contract
  • Extended school day opportunity
  • Summer school

Students, please take a few minutes to complete this survey. Thank you for taking the time to be thoughtful with your responses.

CHECK: What Career Self-Assessments does your student still need to take (if any)?

To assist students in their exploration of careers and graduation pathways research, they take Career Self-Assessments and identify careers they may have an interest in.

Students, check your HSBP Completion Status tab to determine if you still need to take any Career Self-Assessments.

  1. Log into your HSBP Portfolio, using your Mukilteo School District username and password.
  2. In the center of your Completion Status page, find the Self-Assessments section. If you have a green check mark next to an assessment, you do not need to retake it; we have a record of your responses.

Assessment needed You should have a "green" check for all three assessments (Preferences, Interests, and Skills). If you are missing a check mark, or you have a red check mark, you are missing a Career Self-Assessment.

Students may use this link to jump directly to the Career Self-Assessments in their HSBP portfolio: http://bit.ly/HSBPInterests.

Each Career Self-Assessment only need to be taken ONE time.

Step-by-step directions for completing Career Self-Assessments:

BONUS: Start a Résumé - Personal Details, Skills, and Education Experience

A résumé is a good way to introduce yourself. You will usually need one if you are applying for a job, an internship, or scholarship, and one may be needed for a college application. A résumé summarizes who you are including, but not limited to your experience, what you can do, and your unique skills, talents, and leadership and/or athletic abilities. A students' High School & Beyond Plan must include a completed résumé by the end of 12th Grade.

To have a completed HSBP résumé, students will need to include the following sections in their résumé:

Personal Details


Work or Volunteer Experience

Students, follow these directions to get started on your résumé:
