Just getting to play around with an empty account has got my wheels turning regarding all the possibilities that will come from Naviance and how much it will help our students and families.

I also used Avery’s website label developer to integrate the background from my portfolio onto the disc label. I printed address labels with the title of the disc and my contact info to put on the jacket. I am pretty happy with the turn out. 3.
