What is an EDP?

An EDP is a state mandated career plan every 8th grader must complete as part of their graduation requirements.

Think of it as an electronic filing cabinet. In it you can store all of the information your child needs to plan their education and career path.

There are THREE main sections of the EDP

The Career Portfolio: In this section, your child can:

  • Save their Career Matchmaker Results (interest survey)
  • Keep notes on Careers that Interest them
  • Develop an Education Plan based on their career interests
  • Express their Career and Life Goals
  • List their Extra-curricular Activities and Work Experiences

The Resume Builder allows Students to showcase their:

  • Career Objectives
  • Education
  • Work Experiences
  • Skills and abilities
  • Extra-curricular activities
  • Awards and certificates they have received
 
Course Planner is used to choose and update High School Course Selections:
  • Students MUST input high School course selections here during the registration process in March of their 8th grade year.
