Academic & 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, and the development of career management and planning skills. The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (http://dpi.wi.gov/acp) in the PI26 legislation requires public school districts to provide academic and career planning services to students in Grades 6 through 12 beginning in the 2017-2018 school year. These new academic and career planning requirements connect school districts' education for employment plans and programs to the new academic and career planning requirements.
At West De Pere High School we are proud to report that we have implemented Academic and Career Planning since 1998. The heart of our ACP lies within our Advisement and Portfolio process. The ACP is a 4 part process of KNOW, EXPLORE, PLAN, AND GO which students developed throughout Middle School and High School. It is an integral part of our Comprehensive School Counseling conferencing model.
