THE FOUR LETTER WORD THAT MAY GET YOU INTO COLLEGE . . .
CALIFORNIA COLLEGE GUIDANCE INITIATIVE (CCGI)
This school year Upland USD is participating in a new initiative to improve a student’s college readiness and success! California College Guidance Initiative (CCGI) works to ensure all 7th-12th grade students in California have access to a systematic baseline of guidance and support as they plan, prepare, and pay for college.
Students will begin by creating their individual profiles on CaliforniaColleges.edu. This website is a one-stop shop for students to find relevant information for each step in their college planning process. Students will be able to store portfolio documents such as letters of recommendation, resumes, and commendations or awards. Students are able to share their portfolios with educators, advisors, or parents. CCGI will be administered several times per school year through your child's English class. Students have a copy of their login information so they can continue to explore at home!
We hope this new program allows your child and yourself the ability to explore and have conversations about college in your home!
