Recently, the Class of 2018 was introduced to Naviance, a web based college and career planning program that is specific to our school. Each student received an access code, logged on and created their own account. Once logged in they were asked to set up a password for future access.
Students can use this program to explore careers, search colleges and build resumes among other useful functions.
Students were also told briefly about how this program can be used in connection with their GPA and standardized test scores to compare to other HWRHS students who have applied and been accepted, waitlisted or denied acceptance at multiple colleges and universities. Third semester GPAs have been uploaded and fourth semester GPAs for this class will be updated sometime after the current semester ends so they will be available for any summer research.
Parents can also open an account to access and utilize this service. Student and parent accounts are different and each should use their own.
PLEASE NOTE that if your student has an older sibling that had a Naviance account at HWRHS and you have already set up a parent account for that student, you should continue to use that account. You do not need to create a second account. I have gone through the class list and linked any students that I found to have had older siblings. When you log in to your existing account you should be presented with a drop down box asking you which student’s information you want to view. If I have missed anyone and your students are not linked – please let me know so I can link them.
Many helpful tools can be found on the guidance website at: http://hamilton.ccsct.com/page.cfm?p=2022 including a link to the Naviance sign in page as well as the Naviance overview, student guide and parent letter.
If you are establishing a new parent account, be sure to click “i need to register” in the “are you new here?” box. The Initial Access Code is a one-time thing. Once you enter it you will be asked to create a password which you will then use each time you log in using the regular sign in box.
Your Username is: !fc_username
Your Initial Access Code is: !fc_regcode
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
