Academic and Career Plan (ACP)

7th Grade

PWCS -OSS "Preparing All Students to Achieve Success"

Your student will be creating an Academic and Career Plan. The goal is to help middle school students begin to think about the future by considering their interest and abilities as they relate to the world of work. They will select a potential career cluster and career pathway as part of this process. Students will create their plan with the help of his/her middle school counselor. Plans will be updated again in high school.

Parents are encouraged to click on the link to access the plan and to review what your student has completed. Instructions are in the tutorial and parent letter.
