High School and Beyond
High School and Beyond Plan
The High School and Beyond Plan is a state and district graduation requirement ensuring students have a post-secondary plan in place. Using an online tool called Xello, students discover interests, identify skills, research careers and colleges, build resumes and identify majors and career pathways. Students begin exploration in middle school and each year complete new lessons to further their research. Information can be used by staff to plan college visits, guest speakers and field trips aligning with student interests. Once lessons are completed in Xello, the High School and Beyond Plan coordinator will check student work and communicate with students if any part of the plan needs revision. Within Xello is a Method Test Prep link for students to prepare for the SAT and ACT exams. Method Test Prep is a free and comprehensive resource available to all LWSD students.
