Academic and Career Planning, or ACP, is a student-driven, adult-supported process in which students create and cultivate their own individualized, information-based visions for post-secondary success, obtained through self-exploration, career exploration, and the development of career management and planning skills. The ACP is a 4 part process of KNOW, EXPLORE, PLAN, AND GO which students develop throughout Middle School and High School. We will be facilitating the use of Career Cruising in the exploration and planning process for our students.
New Auburn believes that:
- All students should be ready for college and/or career by the time they graduate from high school.
- All work is valuable work.
- Success is determined by each individual student.
- Finding a career is a journey that continues through a lifetime.
The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (http://dpi.wi.gov/acp) in the PI-26 legislation requires public school districts to provide Academic and Career Planning services to students in grades 6 through 12. The purpose of PI-26 Education for Employment programs is to prepare elementary and secondary pupils for employment, to promote cooperation between business and industry and public schools, and to establish a role for public schools in the economic development of Wisconsin.
Communication with parents regarding Academic and Career Planning
The New Auburn School District Counseling staff and ACP Advisors will contact parents regularly throughout the year regarding student progress. ACP and School Counseling websites are another form of communication with parents and the community regarding ACP and Counseling programming.
