Academic & Career Planning
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 DPI website for ACP contains further information about Academic and Career Planning from the state’s perspective.
The Glacial Drumlin ACP team consists of teachers, counselors, and administrators who have been developing this program for the past few years. In the fall of the 2017-2018 school year, we will begin student implementation of ACP.
Students in 6th and 7th grade will be engaging in ACP in their FACE and guidance classes. Students in 8th-grade will be engaging in ACP in their quarter long careers unit. In these classes the student focus will be:
- To create meaningful and supportive relationships between students and adults.
- For students to learn and obtain the processes to adapt to opportunities and challenges brought forth in future planning.
- To support all students on their personalized journeys to successful lives.
During this time, teachers will meet with small groups of students and provide time and guidance with the goal of creating individualized plans. We will be utilizing the Wisconsin Career Cruising Website for this process. Each student will have their own electronic portfolio, and they will receive guidance in this program during his/her encore or grade level designated classes. Students will also be required to do some work on their own outside of these periods. Parents should have access to their child’s portfolios. Our goal is to work towards parents and students collaborating on this process including future course selections, college searches, high school work experiences, and much, much more!
