As a District, we are committed to keeping students engaged during this time of virtual learning. Graduating seniors are a top priority as we ensure they are equipped with the essential skills and information necessary to prepare them for life after high school. Senior Connections is a district initiative to engage graduating seniors in conversations around post-secondary planning. Throughout the remainder of the school year, students will have the opportunity to hear from college admissions representatives, financial aid experts, military recruiters, members of the local job community, and other professionals through a series of monthly virtual sessions.
The Senior Connections initiative for the Class of 2020 brought over 2000 seniors to a virtual space to address their individual questions, problem solve and plan for next steps. We look forward to engaging the Class of 2021 as they prepare for graduation.

Additionally, each Thursday, beginning January 7, 2021, the Guidance & Counseling Department will hold virtual office hours, from 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm, for district seniors and their parents. This will be an opportunity to ask questions related to senior expectations, post-secondary planning and much more. Those monthly sessions may be joined each month at bit.ly/DPSCDSeniors2021 .
We look forward to continued connections through #DPSCDSeniorConnections2021.
