We are so excited to bring a brand-new resource, the DCPS Student’s Guide to Graduation, Career, and College (The Guide), to our high school students and families. The guide will provide individualized information, specific to each student’s progress to date on graduation along with information on college and career pathways.
The Guide is meant to be a resource that will support a collaborative partnership between school staff, students, and families. It was initiated by demand from our community, and the design was a collaborative process between families, students, teachers, partners, central office staff and others. We want to continue that collaboration through the roll out of The Guide. This document offers ideas and suggestions for incorporating The Guide into your existing work.
