7. What is an ICAP or Pathway and why is it required?
The Individual Career and Academic Plan (ICAP) or Pathway provides essential information about each student’s college and workforce goals, plan of study, remaining graduation requirements, assessment scores, and other details which impact the student’s academic/career pathway. Concurrent Enrollment and ASCENT college courses must align with the student’s ICAP or Pathway and must be authorized by the counselor or principal.
