Including families in the planning process early and often is one of the most important things schools can do to help more students access meaningful college and career opportunities.

Alaska has the nation’s highest rate of young adults – ages 16 to 24 – not connected to school or work. And it has the lowest rate of college enrollment and completion. Statewide task forces and researchers have found that partnering with families to help students plan is critical for improving Alaska’s postsecondary outcomes.
