Back on Track Counselor Summit 2021 - Kick-Off to Career & College Readiness

ICAN Presents Back on Track Fall 2021 Kick-Off

The unprecedented challenges in Fall of 2020 delayed or derailed many high school students’ plans for college and career. Admission application totals were down. FAFSA completion was down. With an uncertain future, many students and parents delayed decisions or stopped planning at all. While herculean efforts from many have closed these gaps, ICAN is committed to preventing a repeat this Fall.

To ensure a smooth transition into the new academic year ICAN presents “Back on Track,” a series of interactive, virtual events, online resources and e-alerts to provide all high school students, particularly the Class of 2022, with a clear picture of both the tasks and timelines ahead of them. For counselors the "Back on Track" campaign will focus on providing the most up-to-date college planning tools, resources, and information to aid in your work with students.
