The FolderWave College and Career Planning solution is being developed on the FolderWave technology platform in partnership with the Massachusetts Educational Financing Authority (MEFA).
For the first time, policymakers have an accurate assessment of the number of students who are interested in attending college or choosing a particular career as well as the number of students who have created a college list and ultimately apply. This information provides the opportunity for policy makers to identify and match resources to student needs earlier.
Employers can be engaged to provide internships and jobs for students that have interests and competencies demonstrated in their portfolio.
The platform will be made available to all Massachusetts Middle Schools and High Schools. Student academic data will be integrated into the platform using the same data set schools currently provide to the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.
