Description

Overview:
Academic and Career Planning (ACP) is a process intended to provide academic and career planning services to students in grades 6-12 in public schools across the state. The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) contracted with the Wisconsin Evaluation Collaborative (WEC) at the Wisconsin Center for Education Research (WCER) to conduct a three-year evaluation of the pilot and roll-out of ACP. Key findings from the 2017 ACP evaluation report include: Administrator buy-in is key to program success. • Some teachers still resist ACP based on fears of increased workload and lack of expertise. • Some stakeholders are uncertain and suspicious about the future of ACP, compliance, and monitoring. • Students value ACP programming and want it to be rigorous, encompassing, and personalized. • Students often do not see the full reach of ACP outside of dedicated ACP time. • Family knowledge of ACP is generally low; families want to know what they can do to better support their children. • Districts experience difficulties in sharing knowledge about ACP with local and regional businesses. • Districts want to better understand and communicate about outcomes
