All high school students have an electronic "portfolio" where they can plan out their career from ninth grade to two years beyond high school, said Candace Ford, RCPS director of student support.
"We have online portfolios and six-year plans so students can check their progress from beginning of ninth grade to two years post high school," said Ford.
"That is something relatively new that is being implemented this year with our eighth graders," she said, adding that those student will come into high school with the beginning of a six-year plan.
"The very act of recording their options begins the cognitive act of planning for post secondary options," she said.
