High School and Beyond Plan
High School and Beyond Plan (HSBP)
What is the High School and Beyond Plan? A high school graduation plan prepared for options in career, college, and life. The High School & Beyond Plan helps students gain knowledge and skills to plan current and future goals. Students revise their plan annually to accommodate changing interests, personalized pathway choices and post-secondary goals on what they expect to do following high school graduation. Post-secondary aspirations may include pathways for application to four-year colleges or universities, two-year community or technical colleges, apprenticeship programs, industry standard certificate programs, military training or on-the-job training and workforce entry.
CTE Graduation Pathways
A student may meet this graduation pathway option by completing a sequence of CTE courses, which align with the student’s High School and Beyond Plan. Satisfying this graduation pathway option meets requirements in both English and math. A course that is used as part of a CTE sequence may also be used to meet subject area graduation requirements in CTE or in other subject areas through CTE course equivalencies.

What is the High School & Beyond Plan?
The Washington State High School and Beyond Plan (HSBP) was put in place for students to begin career and college explorations within their high school experience. This aligns to the Eastlake common goal that we “Provide students with the knowledge and skills to make thoughtful decisions in high school and beyond (career and college ready).” Some of the components of the HSBP at Eastlake are implemented using a program called Xello where students can explore different post-secondary paths. Xello will have students identify interests, skills, their desired amount of education and much more to determine some best fit suggestions. At Eastlake, the completion of the HSBP is done throughout a student’s four years and in a variety of courses and activities.
HSBP Mandatory Activity
The Xello “About Me” tasks are a graduation requirement for all students, grades 9 through 12. The information carries over from year to year, so they only need to be completed once. You can always update your responses if you feel your saved careers or colleges no longer apply. Please see the Xello About Me Instructions document for further instruction.
Only SOME of the Xello components are required by the district this year, due to state changes to the HSBP.
