What is a HSBP you ask? According to the OSPI website:
Starting in the 2017-18 school year, students will be required to create a High School and Beyond Plan (HSBP) beginning in the 7th or 8th grade, updating it annually through collaboration with school counselors, teachers, and their parent or guardian.
The purpose of the HSBP is to help students choose a pathway to high school graduation and beyond that meets their needs, interests, and goals.
Are you aware of this?
Do you think it’s a good idea that the State demand/require 7th and 8th graders plan their lives?
How many high school seniors have any idea? How many go to college or the workforce change majors or jobs multiple times?
Should the State be in charge of forcing kids to create plans?
