Every APS student will have a PLAN for their future.

Within the first semester of each year or upon enrollment in APS, every student will create or review their plan that includes goals for academic achievement, graduation, extracurricular and volunteer service learning, work experience and college and/or career. Students will continue to revise their plan throughout the year and their academic careers.

What is a STUDENT PLAN in APS?

The Plan referred to in APS 2026 Goal 1 is the Individual Career and Academic Plan (ICAP). The ICAP is a tangible way to represent and reflect the exploration and planning completed during a student's K-12 experience. It is a multi-year, student-directed process that is built upon each year and follow students throughout their academic experience.

The plan is reviewed and supported by the student's network of support including parents, teachers, coaches and school counselors at least once per year. ICAPs take into consideration students' unique, self-defined interests, needs and goals for shaping successful futures. Other plans that are considered include IEPs, 504s, and READ plans.
