"I Have A Plan Iowa"

Most students will have some time off school this week. It's a great time to spend with friends and family and maybe even get in a few extra hours of work.

It might also be a good time to do a little advance planning. There is a website where you can plan for high school, college, careers, and more.

You need to log in for some of the information, but much of it is accessible without setting up an account. There are separate sections for Middle School, High School, Parents, College, Adult Learners, Job Seekers, Educators, and College Professionals. Much of the information is for Iowa students, but others could benefit as well.

Students can set up four-year plans for high school. They can research careers and discover which classes should be taken to achieve that career. There are planning charts, pdfs, and videos that give information on a variety of topics including grants, scholarships, and financial aid.
