Made with Padlet

In relation to the District’s Model for Excellence, the College & Career Readiness Department Goals are to:

  • Increase graduation rates
  • Decrease Chronic Absenteeism
  • Increase student perceptions of feeling safe & valued

Much of our work is done with 6th-12th grade students through the Student Success Plan (SSP) using a tool called Naviance.

Staff Members:

The Department of College & Career Readiness is made up of the Executive Director of Post-Secondary Success & Alternative Programming and two district lead school counselors. Together the team works to support the School Counselors and College Career Specialists in each of the Hartford Public Schools.
