ECAP (Education and Career Action Plan)

  • From the Arizona Department of Education

    An ECAP (Education and Career Action Plan) reflects a student's current plan of coursework, career aspirations, and extended learning opportunities in order to develop the student's individual academic and career goals.
    We as educators believe that integrating an Education and Career Action Plan (ECAP) process into all facets of the school experience enables students to be lifelong learners and problem-solvers, developing and applying 21st-century skills to their life experiences, as students, as workers, as consumers, and as responsible citizens. With the ability to identify skills and interests and to apply that knowledge to create their own ECAP, our students will have developed needed skills to advance in a more fluid, seamless transition, meeting 21st Century technologies and workplace postsecondary requirements.

    ECAPs at Corona

    The Corona del Sol High School Guidance Department implements the state-mandated ECAP (Education and Career Action Plan) with all regular and gifted education students. In order to meet future workplace challenges, the state recognizes that planning should occur early in a student’s academic career. Therefore, our department guides students by integrating the ECAP into their four years at Corona del Sol High School, which includes skills assessments, interest inventories, four-year high school educational plans, career explorations, résumés, and college, major, and financial assistance searches.
