Academic and Career Planning

Wisconsin ACP

What is ACP?

Academic and Career Planning, or ACP, is a student-driven, adult-supported process in which students create and cultivate their own unique and information-based visions for post secondary success, obtained through self-exploration, career exploration, and the development of career management and planning skills.

Why ACP?

Education for Employment was established in 1985 in response to the growing concern over the number of youth who failed to make a successful transition from school to postsecondary endeavors. s. 121.02 (1)(m), Wis. Stats., states that every school board shall provide access to an Education for Employment program. Chapter PI 26, the administrative rule for this program, was revised and became effective on July 1, 2004.  On June 30, 2013, Wisconsin Statute 115.28(59) was signed to require implementation of academic and career planning (ACP) statewide beginning in 2017-18 for pupils enrolled in grades 6 to 12 in a school district.

It was determined that rather than creating a new rule addressing ACP, the current PI26 would be updated and revised to include the required ACP components.

How can a student view his or her ACT score online?

To create a student account, click the link to the ACT web account, choose “Create Account”, and complete the necessary information.

In order for state testing scores to match to the student account, the first name, last name, date of birth, email address, and home address need to be entered exactly as they were provided on the student answer document.

If the matching fields provided during the account creation process do not match up with what the student provided on the answer document, then the student will need to contact Student Services ( to get assistance with matching their scores to their web account.

Scores are loaded in the system routinely, so if the student at first does not see their results when creating an account, they should check back periodically within the 3-8 week period post testing.
