The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (dese.gov.org) defines Individual Career & Academic Plan (ICAP): a plan of study to guide students through the coursework and activities for achieving personal career goals, post-secondary planning and providing individual pathway options. An ICAP is a multi-year process, beginning no later than the eighth grade, that intentionally guides students and families in the exploration of career, academic and multiple post-secondary opportunities to include
*direct access to the workforce
*tech school/area career center
*vocational training (apprenticeship)
*2 year college
*4 year college
An ICAP is a “roadmap” to help students develop the awareness, knowledge, attitudes, and skills to create their own meaningful pathways to be success ready graduates.
Parents can access ICAP through the Class of 2026 Schoology Course, which has been assigned to your child. If you have further questions please fee free to reach out to your child's counselor.
