BISD 8th Graders Planning for High School and Beyond

  • Planning for High School

    More than 900 Belton Independent School District 8th graders are beginning the process this month of preparing for high school in 2019-20 and district personnel will be providing information and guidance to students as they begin the exciting process of exploring careers, selecting endorsements and choosing activities that will help them package a tailored fouryear plan.

    What you need to know:

    1. Know yourself: build self knowledge, explore post-secondary education options, create a plan with your parents and counselor. To help with this first step, all BISD students have an account with Xello. This web-based program helps students discover the unique pathway that’s right for them using an investigative, discovery-based learning process that opens minds to exciting possibilities. As students gain self-knowledge through assessments and reflection, they save careers, schools, programs, and experiences to form a vibrant, visual roadmap that’s easy to update and share. See you school counselor for access to this interactive resource: https://xello.world/en/
