The new and improved UtahFutures.org is now live! Please remember that this launch of UtahFutures is a functioning pilot. So unfortunately, there may be a few bugs and glitches. Please let us know if you find something that needs to be fixed or that isn’t working properly. Because UtahFutures is a pilot you have an opportunity to influence the final product by providing feedback, including suggestions for improvement and requests for additional functions and features. Send feedback and system questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Type “utahfutures.org” into your browser and you will connect to the new site. Take a minute, create an account and you can start saving your career assessments and your occupation and school searches, and start building your own timeline of important steps in planning for your future. The new Student Profile page is organized into three areas for developing effective Plans for College and Career Readiness.
- Exploration – The three stages of Exploration focus on grades 7 and 8, grades 9 and 10, and grades 11 and 12. Here students participate in assessments, activities, and research to help them expand their list of possibilities and make connections to real world work experience.
- Workspace – Students can select an occupation, connect it to a school, search for scholarships, and create a plan of study with typical high school courses, plus set challenge goals and find other useful planning tools and connections.
- My Plan – Student’s exploration and decision making come together to produce a printable Plan for College and career Readiness.
At every step UtahFutures is designed to challenge students to do more. More exploration, more goal setting, and more planning.
School counselors and other licensed educators can become school site administrators. To become an administrator, create a personal profile account and then send a request to the district school counseling leader or district CTE director to submit your name as a potential administrator by e-mail to email@example.com. Charter school counselors can submit their request directly to the above email. Include a statement that you are a licensed school counselor.
If your district has not scheduled a training for school counselors, on features and functions of the new UtahFutures, please contact your district school counseling leadership and ask them to contact Dawn Stevenson firstname.lastname@example.org.
