Does Your Student Have a High School and Beyond Plan?

High School Students at GraduationPost-secondary education planning is not just for high school upperclassmen.  The Washington State Board of Education recommends a student create their required High School and Beyond Plan (HSBP) in the eighth grade and continue to revise it throughout high school.

A well designed HSBP will help a student explore career options aligned with interests and skills.  The plan then helps the student structure their high school coarse load and extracurricular activities so he or she can achieve their desired future.

The High School and Beyond Plan is a formal process outlined by the Washington State Board of Education.  The Washington State Board of Education provides tools and guides to help students explore their interests and skills.

However, each school district determines how they will implement a High School and Beyond program so the quality of plans vary widely across the state.  As a parent, you are critical member of your student’s planning team.

At a minimum, a HSBP should have:

  • An educational goal
  • A four-year course plan for high school
  • Identification of required assessments

If your child is in eighth grade or older and you have not participated in creating his/her HSBP, contact the guidance counselor at your child’s school.
