WHAT IS A PCCR?
PCCR stands for Plan for College and Career Readiness. During the school year, counselors like to meet with each student and their parent at least one time every school year for an official PCCR. These meetings last about 30 minutes. In general, we look at how the student is doing academically, emotionally and socially. We evaluate and set new goals to keep the student moving forward toward their life goals. We celebrate each student's unique contributions to our school and community. When appointments open, you will receive an email with directions on how to set up an appointment through the myDSD system. If there is not a date and/or time that will not work for you, please call the Counseling Center at (801) 402-0107 to schedule a convenient time. It is our goal to meet with as many parents as we can.
7th grade PCCRs generally take place in September and October. We meet with the 7th graders first so we can check in with them and see how the transition from elementary school to junior high is going.
- We talk about friends and teachers.
- We discuss getting involved in school clubs.
- We review their academic goals.
- We check on their grades.
- We set new goals.
- We look over their College and Career Awareness forms.
This PCCR really helps the counselors get to know each student a little better.
9th grade PCCRs generally take place in November and December. We like to meet at this time so students are ready for high school registration which occurs in January.
- We review the student's grades, credits, and goals.
- We discuss career options and courses that support those career choices.
- We begin discussing college requirements.
- We share helpful websites.
- We provide information on scholarship opportunities.
This PCCR is a critical meeting to ensure students are on track for their sophomore year of high school.
