ABOUT

ACP stands for “Academic and Career Planning, and is a student-driven and adult-supported process where students create their own unique and information-based visions for post-secondary success.  This is obtained through self-exploration, career exploration, and the development of career management and planning skills.  ACP is more about the process than it is about the plan, as students may find that their plans change throughout their middle and high school careers.” (Wisconsin Department of Instruction, PI-26).  

THE PROCESS

We will provide 30 minutes during resource period once a month relating to an ACP lesson or activity in the goal of creating a personalized post-secondary plan.  All students in grades 6-12 will be logging into Xello to start their own academic and career electronic portfolio.  There is now an ACP tab on the middle school and high school website with the ACP resources and information.  We will provide parents with their own login information for Xello, as this would be a way for parents to review what their child has accomplished in their career profile.

SUPPORT

As vital stakeholders in developing your child’s personalized post-secondary planning we have included some resources and ways to support you child in develop their plans, explore careers, and more information on ACP.  Our goals is to have parents and students work together along with staff on this process including course selection, college search, post-secondary work experience, and much more.​ Help your child recognize subjects they are interested in, which subjects they want to challenge themselves in, and work together on how to balance priorities to ensure they can accomplish their personal goals.

resources

Career Clusters are occupational groupings that serve as an organizing tool, categorizing common knowledge and skill sets for secondary and post-secondary education.
