Academic Career Planning (ACP)

All students in the AASD will experience a dynamic Academic Career Plan. This plan evolves from PK-12 learning experiences, both in and out of school, that support employability skills, career awareness, exploration, planning and training.

Learning Experiences that Support The CBL Process
