Educational Development Plan

Beginning in eighth grade, the EDP program allows students to plan their high school classes according to the career pathway in which they have an interest. Each pathway includes:

  • Examples of specific careers
  • Fast-growing occupations
  • Levels of education required for careers
  • Personal characteristics related to success
  • Relevant courses in school

The information taught in each career pathway helps students see how school subjects relate to training beyond high school and the world of work. It also helps students examine their interests, abilities, and goals, and how these relate to their chosen career goals. By having this information available to them, students can then select courses that not only prepare them for high school graduation, but for additional education, training, and employment beyond high school.

Also, because it is web-based, students and parents can access the EDP from any computer with Internet access.

Web-Based Portfolios

With the electronic EDP, students can create a web-based portfolio that can include their:

  • Examples of school projects
  • Grade reports
  • Letters of recommendation
  • Pictures
  • Resume

This portfolio can then be shared electronically with college admissions officials, potential employers, and other audiences as determined by the student.
