Family Connection is a web-based service designed especially for high school students and their parents. Family Connection is a comprehensive website that helps students make decisions about academic plans, colleges, and careers. Family Connection is linked with Counselor’s Office, a service used in FCPS school counseling offices to track and analyze data about college and career plans, so it provides up-to-date information that is specific to each student's school.
“Career guidance and counseling involves administrators, counselors, teachers, and career specialists working together with students and parents to help students make the connection between classroom academics and career exploration and preparation.
The Career Resource Center provides students with information to help them explore educational and career options, make realistic career decisions, and establish career goals. Each Career Resource Center reflects the unique needs of its student population.* "
