Naviance Parent Access!

It's happening. Naviance is our College and Career suite of services to help our students research colleges, apply online to college, research careers, complete a resume, search for scholarships, you name it. Parents have access too! (Parent accounts are View, Not Do in nature, meaning you cannot alter your student's information). Check out this Parent Naviance Tour on YouTube and email me with Naviance in the subject header and I'll get you access for your student's information.
