Re: Principal’s Report

· Should it become necessary to go remote, the high school is prepared.

  • It has been a very busy fall in the guidance office. We have created and implemented not only two completely different schedules, but managed cohort and room sizes as well. Thankfully, schedules have settled and we were able to shift our focus to seniors and at risk students.

They have also been very busy with:

Senior presentations in advisory: Mrs. Conway visited all senior advisories, which were also available to remote students, to present on senior college applications.

Meeting individually with seniors, in person and virtually, to create an individualized post-secondary plan.

Hosting Virtual College Admission visits (UMaine, Husson, UMFK, Thomas, Colby, St. Joseph's College of Maine, and NMCC to name a few)

Forwarding FAFSA information, virtual FAFSA help sessions, YouTube videos, college tours, and other resources to parents and students

FSA ID week where seniors worked with Mrs. Conway to create their FSA ID's. Students who completed this were put in for an amazon gift card drawing. 1/2 of the senior class was able to successfully create their FSA ID's during this time. Mrs. Conway is hosting a virtual FAFSA Completion Night on December 1st with FAME.

Planning KVCC Admit in a Day – we had five participants.

College applications and acceptances. Seniors have been working on college applications and we have had seven acceptances to date! It is still early.
