Equity in Academic and Career Planning(View Complete Item Description)
Addressing equity in the Academic and Career Planning (ACP) process goes beyond offering a scope and sequence of ACP activities that are available to all students. It’s important that you meet the needs of each learner. Every child will approach the ACP process differently and will require an individualized level of support to be successful. Therefore, it’s essential that school leaders responsible for implementing ACP explore equity issues. The following are short activities that can help ACP or career readiness teams and leaders encourage their own stakeholders to learn more about what equity means, how to explore who they are, what beliefs and assumptions they hold, identify their values, and consider how all of this can impact the learners and families they serve. The goal of each activity is to help educators learn a little more about their students and themselves and to leave with one simple action step to improve equity within their district.
