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. 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 Nikolay Middle School and Cambridge High School.  The culmination of this process is a senior portfolio and exit interview.

Throughout our ACP website you will find the District’s PI-26 evidence of implementation.

The following are links that support academic and career planning:
