Naviance and Student Success

To Our 5th Grade Parents and Guardians,

Over the next couple of weeks the counseling department will be in 21st Century Skills classes to introduce Naviance and Student Success Plans to our 5th grade students. Naviance is a portfolio where Student Success Plans will be created and stored. The portfolio will be a resource that will be available to the students starting in grade 5 through grade 12. Student Success Plans are both a district and State Department of Education requirement.  All 5th grade students will log on to Naviance, navigate the site, and complete a survey. We look forward to exploring all the opportunities and ways that Naviance can benefit our students!  Once your child has logged onto Naviance in class, he/she will be able to log on to the account from home through the Reed website to show you what Navaince has to offer.  Link is provided below


For more information about Naviance and Student Success Plans, please refer to the RIS Counseling Department webpage. 

If you have any questions please feel free to contact the counseling office.


We want our students to stay hydrated, but we can only allow students to bring water into the classrooms. Flavored and colored drinks, when spilled, attract bugs and stain our carpeting. Thank you for your cooperation!
