Manage "I" Statements 

"I" Statements are the objectives or goals told from the student perspective. Within Galaxy you'll find a standard list of developmentally appropriate career awareness goals – "I" Statements – set for each grade level. Students can check off each "I" Statement, enter notes, and upload resources to demonstrative they have achieved each objective. Teachers or counselors can monitor and track an individual student’s progress on their "I" Statements as well.

Galaxy administrators can edit, add, or change "I" Statements to meet the need of each school or district.

Important Note: When you create your own set of "I" Statements the default pre-populated list will be removed.

To add and manage your "I" Statements, follow these steps.
