Academic and Career Planning


What is Academic and Career Planning (ACP)?
Academic and Career Planning, or ACP, is a student-driven, adult-supported process in which students create and cultivate their own unique and information-based visions for post-secondary success, obtained through self-exploration, career exploration, and the development of career management and planning skills."  Beginning in the 2017-18 school year, Education for Employment (PI 26) legislation required public school districts to provide academic and career planning services to students in grades 6 through 12. 

ACP is intended to equip students and their families with the tools necessary to make more informed choices about postsecondary education, training, careers for life after high school. It is part of DPI's overall vision for every student to graduate high school academically, socially, emotionally, and life ready.
