      Is college the topic tonight?
      In reply to @radaugherty
  • MrsCarlino Feb 13 @ 8:06 PM EST
    A1: Desire and goals! Students have to want it. Yes, attending college requires skills, but without motivation and drive, even the most skilled folks can lose sight of their purpose for waking up in the morning! #DareToCare #findyourwhy #GoalSetting #wearewayne #collegeknowledge

    Lindsay Wey, Title I RT at GCE, IU undergrad, Butler masters! #wearewayne
  • AVEPrincipal Feb 13 @ 8:07 PM EST
    A1. Test scores, grade, ability to write are popular among those looking in, but I see "grit" being a huge factor for college readiness...Or any post high school readiness #wearewayne

  • Annacoyne74 Feb 13 @ 8:09 PM EST
    A1. For years GPA (in context of the students high school) and test scores have been the key data points. Non cognitive skills that are more difficult to measure are gaining importance as colleges research retention. #IMPACT #wearewayne
  • radaugherty Feb 13 @ 8:10 PM EST
    T1 for Trivia #1! Time for a little college trivia everyone! What is the largest college or university in Indiana? #wearewayne

    In reply to @radaugherty
  • radaugherty Feb 13 @ 8:11 PM EST
    A1: Good question! I agree with @aveprincipal reading, writing, listening, thinking, and speaking at the college level #wearewayne
  • MrsCarlino Feb 13 @ 8:11 PM EST
    Yes!!! What scholars know about the “real world” matters. #disciplinaryliteracy #wearewayne
    In reply to @Annacoyne74
  • MrsWey10 Feb 13 @ 8:12 PM EST
    A1: grit, perseverance, and a strong mental attitude aligned with their academic achievement is needed to be “college ready” #wearewayne

  • MrsCarlino Feb 13 @ 8:15 PM EST
    SECOND "COLLEGE KNOWLEDGE" QUESTION Q2: Once students decide to attend college, how should they proceed in finding the right campus for them? #wearewayne
  • radaugherty Feb 13 @ 8:16 PM EST
    You got it @MrsCarlino Ivy Tech Community College if you consider the network of colleges in Indiana which has 45 campuses, 75 locations, and 160,000 students a year! #wearewayne
  • LHCWilson Feb 13 @ 8:17 PM EST
    A2: They need to figure out what they want to do, and who offers the best programs. They should also visit the campuses of the colleges they are considering. Talk to alum and students, too. #wearewayne
    In reply to @MrsCarlino
  • AVEPrincipal Feb 13 @ 8:17 PM EST
    Q2. Online resources, visits, student testimonials, content strengths, and job placement success with internships should be considered...balanced with cost of course. #wearewayne
  • david_sekulaBDU Feb 13 @ 8:18 PM EST
    A2: know thenselves and what their correct fit is. #wearewayne
  • radaugherty Feb 13 @ 8:18 PM EST
    A2: Campus tours would be my top answer, especially student led to allow them to get a feel for the campus, hear about the resources, and ask questions from someone who attends #wearewayne
  • MrsCarlino Feb 13 @ 8:19 PM EST
    Sweet! @IvyTechCC is a great example of #postsecondary programs that are both affordable and in demand! #STEM Career pathways #Wearewayne
    In reply to @radaugherty, @IvyTechCC
  • reddingcamacho Feb 13 @ 8:19 PM EST
    Elizabeth Camacho, CWE Title I 3RD A2:They need to decide what they might be interested in, and go visit campus to see if it's the right fit. #wearewayne
  • apearish Feb 13 @ 8:19 PM EST
    Sorry I’m late...was packing away! 📦📦📦 A2: Do your research! Naviance #SuperMatch is a great tool to help you refine your search! Programs - Location - Size. Then go visit!!! #wearewayne
  • LHCWilson Feb 13 @ 8:19 PM EST
    A2 I'd start with which campus has the best pizza joints. That should be a very high priority to fuel late study sessions! #wearewayne
  • Annacoyne74 Feb 13 @ 8:20 PM EST
    A2. I love this question! In addition to talking to their school counselor, family, and teachers, Students can use the Supermatch College Search in Naviance to start a list of colleges of interest. Next step is to Visit! #wearewayne
  • MrsCarlino Feb 13 @ 8:21 PM EST
    Yes! BDU scholars area used to a small environment like our building of approx. 400 students, versus what we had @BenDavisHS where my class was 1000! #wearewayne pathways can help students know more about their education preferences BEFORE they choose their #postwayne home
    In reply to @david_sekulaBDU, @BenDavisHS
  • radaugherty Feb 13 @ 8:21 PM EST
    Love that answer @apearish Naviance is a game changer to quote @WendySkibinski! It makes puts the post-secondary world right at your fingertips. #wearewayne
  • MrsWey10 Feb 13 @ 8:21 PM EST
    A2: College visits! What feels right? What would make a good fit? What majors are offered? Financially, what makes sense? Do they have good sport teams? 😉 It’s a big commitment ... don’t limit your possibilities based on familiarity! #wearewayne
  • MrsCarlino Feb 13 @ 8:22 PM EST
    Yes! I love the tools in Naviance for this! Also, this question was mine, so we're both right! :) #wearewayne

    I'm a calzone girl, but totally agree with scoping out the food options! I sure missed mom's cooking! #wearewayne trips were nearly every weekend for that and laundry!

    Q:3 Skilled trades are in demand (no college degree). How do we help students make the best choice for their future? #wearewayne
  • radaugherty Feb 13 @ 8:25 PM EST
    T2: More trivia! What does our BDU partner @VincennesU and the University of Virginia have in common? #wearewayne
  • AVEPrincipal Feb 13 @ 8:26 PM EST
    T2. Both start with the letter, V!#wearewayne
  • LHCWilson Feb 13 @ 8:27 PM EST
    T2 They both are called VU? Lol! #wearewayne
    In reply to @radaugherty, @VincennesU
  • MrsWey10 Feb 13 @ 8:27 PM EST
    A3: providing information on multiple pathways and supporting them during their decision making ... allowing them to see all options before committing to one! No such thing as a one size fits all approach in future planning #wearewayne
  • LHCWilson Feb 13 @ 8:27 PM EST
    Lol, great goof-offs think alike! #wearewayne
    In reply to @AVEPrincipal
  • radaugherty Feb 13 @ 8:28 PM EST
    Q3: Bless our guidance counselors, so important providing post-secondary options including career certification to our students! #wearewayne
  • reddingcamacho Feb 13 @ 8:28 PM EST
    A3: Wayne does a great job with career center. Providing lots of opportunities to explore different jobs. Guidance from school staff as they see S's interests, skills. #wearewayne
  • MichelleElaineO Feb 13 @ 8:28 PM EST
    A2: It’s Michelle Stohler, Parent of three BD grads. As parents, we must listen to what our kids are trying to tell us. Listening is one of the most important skill to muster when supporting our children through this process. #wearewayne
  • david_sekulaBDU Feb 13 @ 8:29 PM EST
    @MichelleElaineO very strong! I concur whole heartedly. #wearewayne

    A3. Counseling is huge with helping students understand their strengths and goal setting towards their future....then guidance towards the correct path. #wearewayne
  • apearish Feb 13 @ 8:29 PM EST
    A3: It’s important that Ts and counselors have those conversations with Ss to help find them define their path. We are blessed to have @A31CareerCenter leading the way for our students who are interested in the trades! #wearewayne
  • Annacoyne74 Feb 13 @ 8:29 PM EST
    The only mistake students make is to leave high school without a plan! We are so lucky to have @A31CareerCenter in our township. Tomorrow they are hosting a continuing education fair for our students. Technical Certificates & apprenticeship opportunities galore! #WEAREWAYNE
