Interactive video lesson plan for: Successful Transitions to High School: Promoting Success & Facilitating College Readiness

Activity overview:

Recorded on June 23, 2011, this was the seventh webinar in the "Achieving Excellence and Innovation in Family, School, and Community Engagement" (FSCE) series.

This webinar highlighted ways to support students and families during the transition from middle to high school—a critical time for setting the course to graduate from high school on time and ready for college. Presenters focused on the knowledge needed to ensure a smooth entry into ninth grade, such as coursework sequencing and graduation requirements, and also explored how schools and community organizations can partner with families to provide services such as tutoring, mentoring, and afterschool programming.

This webinar highlighted innovative practices that facilitate the transition to high school, information about how schools can help families stay engaged in their children's education during the high school years, and services that offer essential information and assistance for students and their families throughout the college application process.

Samantha Wigand, from United Way Worldwide, discussed the importance of active family engagement during students' transition into high school. Joanna Hornig Fox, from the Everyone Graduates Center at Johns Hopkins University, discussed how to support high school completion and college readiness and highlighted the role of families, communities, and school staff in helping students transition into ninth grade. Beth Porter, from Breakthrough Collaborative, discussed an intensive transition program for middle school students that involves a set of ongoing, comprehensive supports to help students succeed in college preparatory high school programs. And Carol Myers, from the Indiana State Parental Information and Resource Center (PIRC), discussed the PIRC's work in building school capacity to engage families and students to promote college and career readiness.
