Academic and Career Planning and PI-26

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."

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 2017-18 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.

The ACP is a 4 part process of KNOW, EXPLORE, PLAN, AND GO which students developed throughout Middle School and High School.

PI-26 is the legislation that requires Academic and Career Planning to take place in all public schools in the State of Wisconsin. Each school district must provide evidence of their implementation of PI-26. Below you will find the District’s PI-26 evidence of implementation.
