High School & Beyond Plan (XELLO)

CHS HIGH SCHOOL & BEYOND OVERVIEW


All students attending Curtis High School, in grades 8 through 12, are required to participate in the CHS High School & Beyond Program (HSBP), including students attending the Running Start program. The CHS HSBP is designed to help high school students develop their college and career readiness goals while meeting Washington State graduation requirements.

The CHS High School & Beyond Program is beneficial to students because it helps them to plan for their future, develop their leadership skills, support their community, and create opportunities to be more competitive in the college selection process, as well as, the job market.

WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE CHS HIGH SCHOOL & BEYOND PLAN?

CHS students create a portfolio in a web-based program, Xello, to complete their HSBP graduation requirements. The requirements include two main components, College & Career Readiness and Volunteer Service:

  • COLLEGE & CAREER READINESS: Students (grades 8-12) will complete tasks in Xello, a web-based planning portfolio, to assist in exploring and creating college and career readiness goals.

Students can access Xello by logging into their UPSD Google Account/Gmail and clicking the Xello direct link in the google waffle.

  • VOLUNTEER SERVICE: Students (grades 9-12) will complete volunteer service hours and record their hours in Xello. Minimum volunteer service hours requirements each school year. Click here on how to log hours.

Xello for families

It’s important for students to take ownership in planning for their future. But the caring adults in their life play an essential supporting role. Use your Xello Family account to see your child’s work in future-readiness. Xello Family lets you explore and discover your child’s future goals and plans so you can better support their learning and development.

Parents or Guardians:

  1. Access Your Account: You will receive a Welcome to Xello! activation email to the address we have on file. Once you click Activate Account through the email, you will be redirected to Xello and asked to create a password.

    • Haven't received an email? Contact the CCRC and we will resend an invite

  2. Explore Xello Family: On the welcome screen, you will see all children linked to your account. Clicking a child’s name will bring you to their profile.

  3. Discover Your Child’s Interests and Goals: In your child’s profile, you will be able to see all the work they’ve done in Xello. If there’s no information in a certain section, your child has not yet started or completed the activity. You can explore each section to learn new information about your child.

  4. Access Your Student Demo Account: Try Xello for yourself to get a better understanding of the platform to support your child. On the welcome screen, select your child’s grade/school under Your Demo Account. Lessons and assignments are catered by grade and school so if you have multiple children, each demo account might look a little different. Once you’re in the demo account, you will be able to take assessments, try a lesson, explore careers, and much more.

  5. Discuss Your Child’s Future Goals and Plan: Xello is a great tool to use to start future planning conversations with your child. Try asking them why they liked a certain career. Were they surprised about their top career suggestions? What different pathways can they take to achieve their goals?

We are here to help. For more information on Xello, visit their website or contact the CCRC on any questions or concerns.
