Sophomore Students,

We were not able to meet with you last year to introduce you to Family Connection by Naviance, a career and college research website. Our students use this website during their high school years and are introduced to the different facets of the program each year. We would like you to register now so that you can start exploring the site but we will be also meeting with all of you around December or January. It would make an easier time to get to know some of the features quicker if you were registered. The instructions to register are below. Please see your counselor if you are having any difficulties.


TASKS:  Registration

            * Follow these procedures to register:

  1. Go to Naviance / Family Connection link on California High website or the website address noted above.
  2. In ‘email’ section, type in student ID number
  3. In ‘password’ section type in 6 digit birthdate

(i.e. January 12, 2000 = 011200)

  1. On homepage click on ‘Manage my account’ in the upper right hand corner
  2. Under ‘Username’, type in an email address that you use frequently then click on ‘Update Username’. Do not use your school email.
  3. Under ‘Password’, first type in 6 digit birthdate again, and then type in new password twice.  Your new password must be at least 6 characters.  Click on ‘Update Password’.
  4. Write your email and password here:
    1. EMAIL: _______________________________
    2. PASSWORD:  _____________________
  5. Click on the ‘Home Tab’ (small orange tab) to get started.

Your parents will be getting a different code to help them register after we have met with all your class.

Have fun with this program.

The last day to drop a class without penalty is September 22nd. If you choose to drop before that date, you will have to find a teacher to aide for, you will not be able to enter any other course.  The class you dropped will not show up on your transcript.

After September 22nd, teachers have the option to give you a No Mark or an F and either of these will go on your transcript. Again, if you drop after September 22nd, you will need to find a teacher to aide for.

Please see your counselors now if you are considering dropping a class so you can get help on knowing your options.

This year Naviance did not upload your emails into your Naviance accounts which they normally do. This does not allow us to email you important career and college information. Please follow these steps to update your account:

+Go into your Naviance account. Go to Cal High website and on the left under Quick Links, click on Naviance/Family Connection. Type in your email and password. If you can't remember your password you can tell it you forgot your password and then follow the directions.

+On the top right hand of your screen, click on "Manage my account".

+On the top left it says "account" and below "manage my profile", click on this. You will now come to your profile page that can be changed if information is incorrect.

+Go to the "email" and click on the pencil icon. Please type in an email that you normally use. Do not type in your Cal High email. +And then click on "Update".

*** If you have never set up a Naviance account and are new to our school, please see your counselor or Mr. Ehret in the Career Center so they can set you up.


Thank you so much,

Welcome to the world of Family Connection by Naviance! This is a career/college website that has been supported by the school district for over six years. Each year we introduce new aspects of the website to help students find out more about their passions and careers interests and ultimately planning for their post-graduation plans whether that be in the military, two-year community colleges, four-year colleges or trade schools. In addition, we will have our students continue to develop their resumes that will  be used for summer enrichment programs, internships, job and letters of recommendation.

In Pine Valley and Iron Horse last year, the students registered for Naviance and took the Cluster Finder survey. We would like for them to re-register for Cal High and retake the survey.

Please see the attached instructions on how to have your students get re-registered.

*** We are asking students to retake the Cluster Finder survey this year. It only takes about 15 minutes. Next year we will delve more into the results of the survey and the wealth of information in that site.


Parents- you will be sent information on how to register for your own account. You will have view only rights but you can review colleges, scholarships, etc. as you and your child ultimately make decisions in their Junior/Senior years about their future plans and goals.


*** If you were not at Pine Valley or Iron Horse last year, please have your student see their counselor to get them registered directly.


Happy researching!

You are free to go online to register for classes now. The portal will close on midnight of March 15th.  You have until March 16th to turn in your online registration sheets into the Counseling Office. If you turn it in late, it may affect priority for your elective classes.


Remember, we will be meeting with each of you individually near the end of March and through April so we can answer any questions you may have at that time. Nothing is in stone until after we meet with you so hang in there if you have questions or concerns.


Make sure you are looking at prerequisites for your classes. You can find the prerequisites in the course catalog on the Counseling website.
