College and Career Advising Program

The Governor’s Taskforce identified proper college and career advising as one of the key factors for student success at the secondary and postsecondary level and a critical investment in order for Idaho to reach its 60% goal. To address this need, the Idaho Legislature passed Senate Bill 1290 providing school districts and charter schools with additional funding to enhance existing programs or develop new research-based programs. This initiative will boost college and career counseling for students in grades 8 through 12.

To learn more about how districts and schools can take advantage of these funds, we’ve put together information for educators regarding funding requirements, college and career advising planning and reporting requirements, and information regarding each of the approved models.
