Smart Futures

 
The Department of Education now requires Career Planning and Portfolios for every graduating student under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). Students will graduate with at least 20 artifacts in their portfolios from interest inventories, to resumes, financial awareness and post secondary planning. There are benchmark years in which certain grades need to have their pieces of evidence completed to help keep them on track.
 
At the middle school level, our benchmark year is Grade 8. By the time our elementary students leave they are required to have 6 pieces of evidence.  Instead of using paper and pencil the district has opted to use an online tracking site, known as Smart Futures. This online career portfolio allows students to access it while in school or at home. 
 
Students in grades 6-8 have already been introduced to this website and are familiar with how it works. If you would like your child to work on their career planning and portfolio at home, please use the following login at www.SmartFutures.org
 
  • Username: is their First and Last Initial immediately followed by their Lunch Number. I.e.) km1234567
 
  • Password: is just their lunch number. I.e.) 1234567
 
If you have any questions regarding your child’s individual Career Planning and Portfolio, please feel free to contact the school at 570 348 3652 or our email: joy.coss@ssdedu.org and kathy.mcgrail@ssdedu.org
