Career Exploration

  • Xello Career Assessment - Xello is your best friend when it comes to planning for your life after high school! Xello helps students discover the pathway that's right for them, whether it involves a trade, college, university, entrepreneurship, or other training through short assessments. As students start to discover their strengths and interests through assessments and reflection, they are able to save careers, schools, program, and experiences to create a roadmap that's easy to update and share. Wichita Public Schools uses Xello as our online platform for each student's Individual Plan of Study (IPS) and it is accessible via student RapidIdentity accounts and on your mobile device.
