Hobsons, a provider of student support solutions, and Liberty Public Schools (LPS), recently collaborated to bring individualized learning and academic planning to the classroom by integrating Naviance, a college and career readiness platform for schools and districts.
The Naviance platform gives schools and districts a central location to set goals and priorities for individual students, track their progress and measure student outcomes across their entire student population in order to improve college and career readiness.
Hobsons continues to advance its role in education by maximizing student success and institutional effectiveness. Its solutions are designed to let students to develop personalized academic and career plans based on their goals, interests, abilities and learning styles and enable institutions to reach and connect with students that are the right fit and help them stay on track to achieve their goals.
The Liberty Public School District serves the residents of approximately 85 square miles in Clay County. The school district, located just northeast of Kansas City, serves more than 11,600 students in grades preschool to 12.
Named as “High Performing School District” by the state of Missouri for 12 consecutive years and also aligned with Missouri’s Top 10 by 20 program, LPS has plans to bring together its own one-to-one platform and Naviance Course Planner, a tool designed to help students build multiyear plans of study to meet their post-secondary goals, and PrepMe, an online adaptive test preparation solution for the ACT, SAT and PSAT.
This move should help more than 5,000 students enjoy access to a diverse lineup of college and career exploration tools and also help counselors easily develop personal plans of study aligned with each student’s unique strengths and interests.
Dr. John Jungmann, superintendent at LPS, said in a statement, “Customizing the education experience to meet the needs of each unique student is the ultimate goal and this is one more example of how our high quality educators can use sophisticated technological tools to help our students find success and leave Liberty prepared for that next step.”
