Don’t Reinvent the Wheel: Learn from Other Schools’ Success Stories

Learning what is current in the industry or the field can be time-consuming and frustrating. Luckily the National College Attainment Network (NCAN) has saved you time and energy by compiling in one place information on the different aspects of college and career advising for your ease to review and learn.

Lots of districts and schools really want to improve their college and career readiness efforts. You may even be associated with one of them! But it turns out lots of districts and schools can also benefit from help figuring out how to do that. Don’t reinvent the wheel! It feels bad. Instead, borrow someone else’s wheel and make it yours! 

I’ve pulled some blog posts from NCAN’s blog that focus on different aspects of college and career advising. These are mostly from a high school context, but some also feature K-12 and community-based partnerships. Have questions? As always, I’d love to hear from you. You can reach me at, and I hope you’ll reach out! 

Still with me? I’m grateful, thanks for reading! As a bonus, here are three more of my favorite posts: 

Next month we’ll have more information on how to freeze summer melt early. Summer melt starts way before summer starts, so it’s never too early to start thinking about it. In the meantime, I hope this post got some ideas going on different practices districts and schools can adopt to help students be more successful!
