Today, the average high school counselor-to-student ratio is 464:1. This typically translates to only 38 minutes of advising for high school seniors in low-income communities. This is not nearly enough. Now imagine if more students in your district felt affirmed, engaged and supported in reaching their college and career aspirations.
That’s the power of OneGoal’s District Partnership Pilot.
This new initiative integrates our proven postsecondary success model into the fabric of your school district —from district goals and master schedules, to teacher training and school culture— ensuring that all students across the community continue to strive toward their greatest ambitions after graduating high school.
We will partner with districts to co-create postsecondary enrollment and completion goals that ensure the OneGoal course is integrated into every school’s master schedule
So that the vast majority of students in a district can access OneGoal, earn credit toward graduation, and leave high school prepared for their chosen postsecondary pathway
We will leverage personalized learning technology to deliver our curriculum online and provide robust, ongoing analysis and data-informed interventions
So that learning continues outside the classroom, allowing teachers to maximize their time with students towards providing them with individualized support
We will adopt a “train the trainer” approach where we identify and train leaders within schools to serve as the OneGoal Site Director
So that schools have the capacity to grow and support a network of Program Directors, enabling students to have numerous supports throughout their OneGoal journey
In the fall of 2020 we launched our inaugural pilot in three districts, serving roughly 250 students to start with aims of reaching a critical mass of students in the coming years. Our district partners are:
District and school leaders lay the foundation for students to be lifelong learners and determine their own future. In today’s world, that means preparing them to succeed in their chosen postsecondary path. Our NCAN-endorsed rubrics are a roadmap to help you evaluate and grow your school’s postsecondary readiness, measuring your readiness in seven focus areas on a three point scale.
