8th Grade Plan for College & Career Readiness Meetings
The Indian Hills counselors will be meeting with you and your 8th grade student for approximately 20-30 minutes for your student's College & Career Readiness meeting. In this meeting, we will be going over your student's 4-year high school plan, college and career options, as well as individual concerns and celebrations.
Please click one of the links below to find an available time slot to meet with your student's counselor. If your assigned counselor is unavailable for the time you desire, you are welcome to sign up and meet with another counselor. If you are unavailable to attend the PCCR meeting during the day, there are a few evening appointments available, or we can meet with your student individually.
In order to provide a more individualized meeting, please review the general Alta / high school information here prior to attending your student's PCCR meeting. This should allow more time for specific questions and individual planning with your student.
Interpreter and translation services are available upon request. Please call the Counseling Center secretary to arrange for an interpreter/translator. 801-826-7120
School Counselor Week Reflection
A couple of our Canyons District counselors were on Good Things Utah talking about how parents can help their students be successful and prepare for College & Career Readiness. Check it out HERE.
5 Things School Counselors Want Parents to Know:
1. Teach your kids how to study: How many of you ask you kids if they have homework? There is always something they can read, study and prepare for.
2. Support your kids in becoming resilient: Allow them to grow and succeed on their own merit. Tell them they can do hard things. Every student is at a different level of challenge.
3. Be supportive & proactive in your kid’s education: Know who their teachers are and how to contact them. Know how to use your school’s web based grading system. Check your child’s grades regularly. Understand the importance of daily attendance.
4. Use your resources: Your School Counselor is your #1 resource
5. It is never to early to start preparing for College and Career Readiness: There’s is a path for every student in Utah after high school. Let your counselor help you explore your options.
