An Individual Career and Academic Plan is a roadmap which includes the development of a flexible career focus and an education plan that is clearly-defined, rigorous, and relevant to ensure a successful and efficient transition to postsecondary education and/or the world of work.
An Individual Career and Academic Plan (ICAP) is a student's scope and sequence of coursework and related activities based upon their chosen Career Path or Career Cluster.
The foundation of the Individual Career and Academic Plan is the school-approved program of study for the student's Career Cluster. It is a roadmap that includes graduation requirements, approved coursework for the student's educational and career goals, and developmentally-appropriate, work-based learning experiences.
An ICAP is developed cooperatively with the student and the student's counselor, teachers, and family members. The plan is reviewed at least annually and is revised as needed.
