Parent-teacher conferences are unnecessary. Students should be held accountable for staying on top of school work and communicating with parents and/or teachers if they are having an issue in a class, without relying on parents to express certain concerns for them. This year, WHS administration endorsed a career readiness course called Xello, where all high school students were required to complete a series of lessons and construct a PowerPoint containing information about their results that they will present to parents during a student-led meeting.
WHS introduced a new career and college readiness program called Xello this semester, to a mixed response. Xello is a new online program designed to help students plan for careers after high school. Students who do Xello complete lessons that help them figure out what their plans after high school will look like, whether it be trade colleges, universities or other alternate routes. Students also complete career, personality and learning style assessments so they can better understand their interests, skills and strengths.
