What is Naviance?

Naviance Student allows your student to:
- Get involved in the planning and advising process – Build a resume, complete online surveys, and manage timelines and deadlines for making decisions about colleges and careers

- Research careers – Research hundreds of careers and career clusters, and take career assessments
- Create plans for the future – Create goals and to-dos, and complete tasks assigned by the school to better prepare your student for future college and career goals.

Frequently Asked Questions
As a parent, what is my next step?
Access your student’s Naviance account to review their learning location and course selections for the 2021-2022 school year. Instructions for accessing your student’s Naviance account can be found on our Counseling & Behavioral Services website.
Will I be able to change my child’s learning location choice in the 2021-2022 school year at any time?
Families will be able to change their child's learning location for 2021-2022 on specified dates this summer and within the grading periods. It is the district’s goal to be flexible and supportive while providing a manageable structure for teachers tracking assignments and grades. Specific dates will be determined after the 2021-2022 school year calendar has been approved and finalized.
Will all classes be offered in person and online?
Humble ISD will work to provide as many courses as possible in a virtual format, however, some courses may be impacted by staffing or in person logistics that make it challenging to provide virtually.
Humble ISD has determined that certain Career & Technical Education (CTE) courses must be taught in person because they require specialized equipment, direct supervision of hands-on activities, compilation of training hours, and/or specific materials and technology. These determinations have been made in conjunction with recommendations released by the Texas Education Agency (TEA). While these designated courses are not available to those students choosing online learning from home, virtual students may select from many other CTE courses that can be offered online.
Additionally, HS Drill Team and MS Competitive Dance Team students must select either in person or the virtual plue UIL option in order to participate in these programs.
Will all of my child’s classes be taught by a teacher from my child’s home campus?
Humble ISD provides a personalized education by offering a wide variety of academic and elective courses. In an effort to support virtual students well, students who select virtual learning may be taught by a teacher who serves students from multiple campuses. In certain high school courses, the instructor may be from Lone Star College, the University of Texas-Austin, or other institutions of higher learning. Combining students from multiple schools, and partnering with colleges for certain courses, allows virtual students the opportunity to take a variety of courses that may not be available from their home campus.
Will virtual students’ schedules look the same next year as they did this year?
Humble ISD will be creating a period schedule that allows synchronous components within the asynchronous learning model for staff and students. Virtual students will be scheduled into specific class periods for each online class. This will provide a designated time in the school day for the teacher to focus on students enrolled in that period. However, online students will be free to complete school work outside of that class period if needed and will not be required to log in at a specific time for most assignments.
Can the privilege of coming to school just for UIL classes be revoked?
Students will be required to sign a behavioral contract indicating that they will be on campus at the times that their coaches/directors have indicated for class/practices/events and will not be on campus at unauthorized times. Ensuring that students are supervised in designated areas helps keep kids safe. Students who do not follow the behavioral contract can face consequences, including losing the privilege of coming on and off campus during the school day. They may be required to become a full-time on campus student or a full-time online student.
How can I learn more about course selections?
Each school will be posting a Parent Night Video in January or February, depending upon the schedule that the school will be using for counselor presentations to students. The link will be emailed from the school. We look forward to meeting your child’s needs in continuing partnership with your family.
Will I be able to make changes after May 21st?
Humble ISD is creating a process for any needed changes to learning locations and/or schedule changes. This information will be communicated prior to May 21st.
