Academic & Career Planning

What is Academic and Career Planning?

ACP is intended to equip students and their families with the tools necessary to make more informed choices about postsecondary education and training as it leads to careers. It is part of DPI's overall vision for every student to graduate high school college and career ready. That means students must be competent both socially and emotionally. We want our students to be strong critical thinkers, collaborate and solve real-world problems, and persevere when things aren’t quite going their way. When put together, it’s about making them productive adults with satisfying careers.To learn more about why ACP matters, watch this video.


ACP at Rio High School

Rio High School has an Academic and Career Planning team comprised of staff members. The goal of the team is to provide more meaningful activities and experiences to students, so they are set up to achieve better post secondary outcomes. The team is analyzing course offerings, community partnerships, and college and career readiness instruction. We are focusing on the state's ACP model of Know, Explore, Plan, Go.

PORTFOLIOS

Current students in grades 9-12 complete portfolios for graduation. Homeroom teachers review portfolio requirements and time is provided to complete each component of the portfolio during homeroom. Each student is responsible for completing these activities. There are check points throughout the year, and if students do not have their activities completed at the check point, they will be removed from activities and honors privileges until they are caught up. Below is the scope and sequence of activities for each grade. Links to activities are listed to the right.
