Central High School ECAP

 

What is ECAP?

An ECAP (Education and Career Action Plan) reflects a student’s current plan of coursework, career aspirations, and extended learning opportunities in order to develop the student’s individual academic and career goals.

 

Why have an ECAP?

Integrating an Education and Career Action Plan (ECAP) process into all facets of the school experience enables students to be lifelong learners and problem-solvers, developing and applying 21st century skills to their life experiences, as students, as workers, as consumers, and as responsible citizens. With the ability to identify skills and interests and to apply that knowledge to create their own ECAP, students will have developed needed skills to advance in a more fluid, seamless transition, meeting 21st Century technologies and work place postsecondary requirements.

 

What is the Phoenix Union High School District ECAP Checklist?

The PUHSD checklist meets the ECAP Attributes determined by the Arizona Department of Education and indicates what activities should be completed in each grade level. The checklist can be found on the Counseling tab of the Central High School website.
