You have probably heard about the state initiative that will require an Academic and Career Plan (ACP) for every Wisconsin student in grades 6-12 beginning in the 2017-2018 academic year. Sometimes referred to as Individualized Learning Plans (ILPs), ACPs are intended to empower all students to travel the road to adulthood through education and training to careers in an informed manner.
Keep in mind that the ACP is a process, not a product. As such, it will will evolve as the student matures to reflect their growing knowledge of themselves, their interests and their goals. The process will involve supportive adult relationships, a personalized approach to career planning and education, and student empowerment.
I believe the ACP is is great news for those of us who are involved in career development and planning! It incorporates many activities that schools and educators are already doing… and I believe it can have a great impact on students, especially those who currently lack direction or motivation.
To date 38 states use some type of ACP or ILP, with 21 of those states mandating them for use with all students.
To help explain the need for ACPs and the ACP process, the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction has created a web page with news, resources, and communication tools. You can find that information at http://acp.dpi.wi.gov/ .
