Student Email Accounts

San José Unified School District is aligning academic counseling services to all students in both middle and high school. As part of our initiative, we would like to prepare students beginning in middle school for College and Career Readiness. One step in this process includes creating a professional e-mail that can eventually be used to correspond with colleges, universities, and other post-secondary opportunities available to your student.

In the Spring of 2015, your 8th grade student will be creating a professional e-mail account with the help of their school counselor. The main purpose of creating this e-mail account will be for your student to create a California Colleges profile that will save their career interests and college searches. Through this email account, the middle school counselor may send students information about age-appropriate college and career opportunities available to them, such as summer programs and volunteer opportunities.The student will enter their e-mail into the Infinite Campus Student Portal, and when the student enters 9th grade, they will begin to receive emails from their high school counselor regarding college and career information through their Naviance account. (Naviance is a web-based college and career readiness platform that allows SJUSD high school students to manage their college applications and process).  As students transition to high school, and move towards their post-secondary college or career option, your child will be required to regularly check emails that colleges, universities, or workplaces may send with critical,  time-stamped deadlines. We would like to prepare our students to understand the importance of this practice as early as 8th grade.

If you have any questions about this process, please contact your school’s academic counselor. An opt-out form will be distributed to each student that parents/guardians may fill out if they prefer that their child not have an e-mail account.
