Many districts are just beginning their ACP implementation. In the School District of New Berlin, one of the early steps in our ACP implementation was the creation of the Grade 7 Careers and Communications (C2) course during the 2013-14 school year. The C2 course provides a solid foundation for Academic and Career Planning. This course has allowed us to build out a scope and sequence to support students transitioning from elementary to middle school. It was a key implementation lever in ensuring that all students in grades 6-12 had access to Academic and Career Planning services by 2017-18. This session will review the learning objectives, scope and sequence, and resources leveraged in the class. Specific results gathered through assessments, disposition development, and student reflections will also be discussed.
