Family Connection (Naviance)

The Plum Borough School District is pleased to introduce Family Connection from Naviance, a Web-based service designed especially for students and parents.

Family Connection is a comprehensive Web site that you and your student can use to help in making decisions about colleges and careers.

Family Connection is linked with Counselor's Office, a service that is used in the PHS School Counseling Office to track and analyze data about college and career plans, so it provides up-to-date information that's specific to PHS.

Family Connection will allow you and your high school student to:

    • Get involved in the planning and advising process - Build a resume, complete on-line surveys, and manage timelines and deadlines for making decisions about colleges and careers
    • Research colleges - Compare GPA, standardized test scores, and other statistics to actual historical data from students who have already applied
    • Common Application- Click here to learn how to use the Common Application through Naviance.
    • How to add colleges & request transcript
    • Completing the FERPA Release Authorization

Family Connection also lets us share information with you and your child about up-coming meetings and events, local scholarship opportunities, and other Web resources for college and career information.

In addition, the site includes a link that your child can use to send us an e-mail message. To visit our school's Family Connection site, use your Web browser to connect to:
