School Counselor Lead Initial Individual Career and Academic Plan Implementation Design

Markus Moeder-Chandler


In Fall of 2014 for Fountain-Fort Carson School District #8 undertook a revamping of graduation and state mandated ICAP requirements for implementation for the graduating class of 2021.  This design and implementation process included numerous stakeholders and several years of planning from Fall of 2014 to Spring of 2017. The design and implementation of this process, and its measures, can be used as a roadmap of best practices for other schools and districts moving towards ICAP and state mandated graduation requirement implementation. With increased significance placed at the state and national level for post-secondary preparation for all students, the necessity for high quality career and academic planning, created and led by school counselors, continues to be paramount.  This study grows the body of knowledge practice around multi-year post-secondary planning and design implementation for current high school practitioners.
