For Underclassmen:

Students in grades 7-12 have taken a YouScience aptitude/interest assessment.  Results may be viewed by logging into the student’s PowerSchool Parent Portal, under LDS and then YouScience.  The assessment matches them with careers based on their ability to perform in certain brain games.  Please view this information with your child/teen.  If you have any questions or concerns, you may reach out to price.melissa@marion.k12.ga.us.

 Juniors, you should start researching colleges if you haven’t already done so.  Valuable information regarding colleges in Georgia can be found at www.gafutures.org.  Most college websites have a virtual online tour.  Check out requirements, majors, etc.  If you have questions, you may e-mail jernigan.melissa@marion.k12.ga.us

 

Dual Enrollment Information:

Please rely on college contacts to let you know how to proceed with your classes.  If you have any questions or concerns regarding your dual enrollment courses, contact price.melissa@marion.k12.ga.us or your collegiate liaison.

 

BE SURE to check your college e-mail account, not just your online learning platform.  Stay up to date with your classes and keep working.

 

Regarding Emergencies:

If you see or know of a situation that requires emergency care, please do not e-mail! 

For child abuse—Call 1-888-GA-Child

For suicidal ideation or other mental health problems—Call 911 and/or the Georgia Crisis and Access Line at 1-800-715-4225.  Students who need to talk with a counselor, but who are not currently in therapy, may contact 741741.

 

Final Notes:

Please understand that we may not be available every day.  Make plans to take care of academics in a timely fashion.  Don't wait until the last minute with scholarship applications, etc.

If you have been assigned to an Edgenuity course, please make sure you finish it by May 15th, especially if you need it to graduate!
