As part of the School Counseling Department's career program, all 10th and 11th grade students are expected to participate in Post-Secondary Planning Assessments, which will take place on Wednesday, October 16th. 10th grade students will participate in the ASVAB Career Assessment Program while 11th grade students will participate in the PSAT. Assessments will be administered that morning. Students will not miss any academic classes as we will be operating on an alternate bell schedule.
We understand that students may already have a post-secondary path in mind. In that case, parents may choose to have their child take the other assessment this day in line with their child's plan. Post-Secondary Planning Assessments provide vital information to assist students in developing a realistic career plan. Students are encouraged to participate, however parents may choose to opt their child out of taking the assessment.
All 10th grade students are automatically enrolled in the ASVAB Career Assessment Program. All 11th grade students are automatically enrolled in the PSAT Assessment. Parents who choose to have their child take the opposite assessment or or to opt out of their associated assessment must complete the Google Form below by Tuesday, September 10th. Please note for any 10th grade student selecting the PSAT for an option, there will be $17.75 test fee.
Information on both the ASVAB and the PSAT can be found on the attachments included with this message.
If you are planning for your child to take the assigned career assessment (10th grade ASVAB, 11th grade PSAT) – do nothing. Your child will automatically be enrolled for the appropriate assessment based on their grade level.
