Students participate in grade level activities on this site during school hours while I help them
establish some goals and find out what career would be an appropriate choice in the future.
Students make goals to complete in high school as well as plan for college. There are tools to
help students plan for financial aid, so they can be successful in completing their goals. As
students go through this process, a portfolio is created, so parents and others can access what the
student has done so far.

Social Development Success:

http://www.ahaparenting.com/
This site is filled with many articles, books, audio/video resources for parents with students of all
ages. I would use this site to provide parents with specific resources or articles to read on
content our students were studying. For example, I found a wonderful article on 10 ways to
Empower Your Child against Bullying. I think many parents could find some valuable
information on this site.
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/signe-whitson/bullying_b_2188819.html
I found this specific article from Huffington Post to be a link I would pass on to parents, teachers
and students. It discusses the difference between people or students who are Rude vs Mean vs
Bullying. There needs to be more education on bullying for not only students, but for parents as
well. Providing articles such as this one to parents might help educate them on bullying as well
which in turn helps our community.
