Virtual College and Career Week

My counseling partner and I planned a Virtual College/Career Week as we along with the rest of the world, are adapting to distance learning due to school closures. The fun and learning must go on!

But let me be clear, we wanted to make this both low maintenance and high impact. Looking back, I think we succeeded (our week was March 30-Apr 3). The main points of our virtual college/career week are highlighted below with links wherever I could put them.

Check here for our school’s blog…. this is what our students/families saw for the week. Each of the days of the week are hyperlinked to the activity for the day.
