Individual Career & Academic Plan (ICAP)
What is ICAP and how does District 49 help students plan for their future?ICAP is an ongoing, multi-year process that intentionally guides students and families in the exploration of career, academic and postsecondary opportunities. From elementary school through high school, D49 helps students discover who they are, what makes each student unique, and how they can find their pathway into the future!
YouScience is an online tool available to D49 middle school and high school students that helps them understand their aptitudes and natural abilities and introduces them to potential career pathways. Students can ask their campus School Counselors about setting up an account on YouScience.
PPBEA partners with D49 to help students explore careers through classroom presentations, site field trips, job shadows, informational interviews, and hands-on internships. Students can set up their own "Marketplace" account to explore the opportunities available on the PPBEA website. (PPBEA Marketplace)
