HOW?

Career Center Manager schedules the classes (being flexible for rescheduling). Teachers send individual students who were absent on the date of the class visit with a deadline. Some preparatory work may be necessary to minimize the amount of time students are not in the classroom (resume worksheet, etc.) CCM may go to the classroom for a brief visit to provide information prior to the class visit.
Maintaining accurate scholarship and financial aid information Be sure to focus on upcoming deadlines. Advertise through announcements, newsletter, website (posting links), etc. Only display current material. For ACT and SAT testing, notify the students’ counselor if you are aware the students are from low income families. Waivers are provided for these students to test for free (a total of 2 times during their junior and senior years). Post the testing dates and include in your correspondence and communication. Test Prep opportunities should also be made available. Some are free while others are quite costly. www.Get2College.org (free) www.Get2College.org www.actstudent.org www.collegeboard.com Please be aware that ACT has a new identification process in place which began in 2012-2013.
