Individual Career & Academic Plan (ICAP)
What is ICAP and how does District 49 help students plan for their future?ICAP is an ongoing advising process that guides students and families with career exploration, course planning, work-based experiences and training, and free college options. 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!
You, and the many possibilities ahead...
YouScience is an online interest survey for D49 middle school and high school students that helps them understand their natural abilities and introduces them to potential career pathways. Students can ask their campus advisors about setting up an account on YouScience.
D49 partners with the Pikes Peak Business & Education Alliance (PPBEA) to help students explore careers through classroom presentations, site field trips, job shadows, informational interviews, and hands-on internships for high school credit. Students can set up their own "Marketplace" account to explore opportunities available on the PPBEA website. (PPBEA Marketplace)
