PowerSchool (NYSE: PWSC) today announced New Castle Community Schools (NCCS) in New Castle, Indiana selected PowerSchool Naviance, a core component of the PowerSchool Workforce Development Cloud, to support its college, career, and life readiness (CCLR) program. Alongside their existing use of PowerSchool Student Information System, NCCS’s implementation of Naviance will help students uncover future interests.
“Through our district’s positive experience using PowerSchool SIS, selecting Naviance to support our college and career readiness program was an easy decision,” said Adam McDaniel, Assistant Superintendent, New Castle Community School Corporation. “We're excited to use Naviance to support our efforts monitoring student pathway progress across our secondary schools, along with providing each of our students with access to the skills and knowledge needed to help inform their futures.”
Naviance’s CCLR readiness platform helps more than 10 million students in the U.S. discover their strengths and interests to find their best-fit path after high school. Through the platform’s unified interface, students can search for colleges aligning with their specific interests, take career assessments, and stay organized by creating goals and to-dos, among other features.
Through Naviance’s array of CCLR capabilities, NCCS staff will now have access to technology capable of helping their students effectively explore the full range of educational and career options available to them. By using the platform’s Course Planner tool, students will be able to create multi-year course plans based on their career interests to ensure their best path to success after they graduate. Paired with the platform’s self-discovery, college research, and reporting features, NCCS now has additional support to ensure each student has access to high-quality resources to achieve milestones toward their postsecondary goals.
Naviance will further support NCCS’s efforts in digitizing its core administrative operations. By using PowerSchool SIS, and the Educator Recruitment Cloud, which includes SchoolSpring Job Board, Applicant Tracking, and Employee Records, NCCS continues to successfully facilitate its scheduling, attendance, grading, calendaring, talent management, and broader human resource and administrative functions.
