Implement a Targeted systematic approach of extended learning opportunities for college and career exploration through the “College Links” program at FES.

District Wide we will provide academic and career counseling to targeted groups to support an increase in the percentage of all students meeting requirements for college admission. We encourage all of our Native American students to be “College Ready” whether or not they choose to attend college.


“ You’re never too young to start planning your future.”
