--> Dashboard is an attempt to help high school students be more successful by giving them a clear, easy to understand, and visually appealing look at their progress towards graduation and college. The emphasis here is placed on reaching both graduation and obtaining a Bright Futures Scholarship. --> Tools are also provided to assist students in preparing for college. It is not merely a checklist, it is a comprehensive system that helps students feel accountable for their actions and helps them understand what they need to do to be accepted into college and how to prepare.

Each widget has a widget view, as viewed in Dashboard mode, and an expanded version called Detail View. --> Widget Mode gives students a view of their grades, scholarships, calendar, service hours, and their application and resume progress. Allowing students to understand their academic progress without bombarding them with information is key to getting them involved in their own future. --> Each student will have a profile generated automatically and will update with current grades from each school’s database.
