Beginning in the 2017-18 school year, all Wisconsin public schools are required to provide their grade 6-12 students with Academic and Career Planning (ACP) services.  If implemented effectively, ACP can be an incredible tool for identifying and meeting the needs of gifted students. 

This session will explain the vision of ACP and how ACP can help schools better understand how to provide the experiences gifted students need to be challenged and continually challenge themselves.  The session will also show how ACP can facilitate much deeper engagement of students in designing and executing their own learning plans and the critical role families and all teachers have in the ACP process.

Participant Outcomes:

  • Gain an understanding of the state mandated Academic and Career Planning initiative and the impact ACP can have for gifted students
  • See how they can play a crucial role in ACP implementation and execution and how ACP can connect and contribute to numerous other programs and initiatives
  • Learn about the immense collection of resources available for ACP implementation that can help ensure it is done effectively so it has the greatest positive impact on students.
