ECAP Best Practices for Implementation
June 15, 2 PM – 3 PM
 
Allowing space for students to participate in and create an Education Career Action Plan (ECAP) is a graduation requirement in Arizona.
 
ECAP is an ongoing process that empowers students to create a meaningful and individualized plan toward a postsecondary pathway. The ECAP process results in a student portfolio where students outline their secondary and postsecondary plans aligned to their career aspirations. The ECAP process portfolio has four attributes (academic, career, postsecondary, extracurricular) which should be documented, reviewed, and updated annually. Join AzCAN, Amanda Nolasco from ADE, and three schools from around the state as they showcase how their ECAP action plan, lessons, and activities ensure students leave high school with a meaningful ECAP experience and portfolio. Register today.
 
Do you know any high school students who need help with the college application, financial aid and FAFSA process? AdviseAZ is working with AzCAN to offer all Arizona high schoolers the opportunity to talk with near-peer advisers virtually for free on all things college access. To sign up or learn more send us an email. 
 
AzCAN Common Measures
It is important to understand where Arizona stands in terms of education in order to make a plan of action for increasing attainment and access. We at AzCAN are committed to ensuring that every student has the knowledge and resources needed to be success.
 
We recently updated our Arizona Common Measures, which are based on national metrics from NCAN and designed to guide our work as well as track the collective progress towards our statewide goal of Achieve60AZ.
