  1. PEP - Personal Education Plans Professional Development

  2. SCLT Summer WorkPersonal & District Values

  3. District Values • Excellence • Students first • Integrity • Accountability • Equity • Collaboration • Fun

  4. PEP Overview & Compliance

  5. What is it really? The Personal Education Plan is a process that students participate in, which results in an actual plan. Process: Grade level required activities using: Naviance CollegeinColorado Guidance Lessons Plan: Career cluster or path goal Post secondary goal 4-year high school plan, including courses

  6. What’s new? • Increased compliance with ICAP State Requirements • Increased Lesson Quality • Increased Training and Support

  7. ICAP Compliance

  8. Why does it matter? Because the ASCA National Model has Individual Student Planning as one of the four components of the delivery system. Because we know it is best for students to make plans for their futures, even if those plans change. Because the DPS Counseling Standards include academic and career planning for all students. Because the DPS School Board has Post Secondary Readiness goals that we are charged to fulfill. Because a Personal Education Plan is part of DPS’ graduation requirements. Because the 2009 state of Colorado’s School Finance Act requires that sixth grade students open a College In Colorado account in order to begin the ICAP process. Because Colorado’s legislature passed laws requiring ICAPs for secondary students. Colorado Department of Education’s rules for the ICAP law require students in 9th through 12th grade to explore careers, post secondary education, and high school success. Because Colorado’s legislature passed the ASCENT legislation reforming how high school students can participate in concurrent enrollment programs. In order for a student to participate in the ASCENT concurrent enrollment program, they must have an ICAP directly relating to the post-secondary course.

  9. Why does it matter?

  10. ICAP Standards

  11. Grouped into 4 Categories

  12. ICAP/PEP Alignment PEP Categories (PEP Last Year) ICAP Categories (PEP This Year) Career Exploration Academic Planning College Planning Career Exploration Academic Planning Post-Secondary & Financial Planning Goal Setting We identified 2 new areas of focus that we were missing: Financial Planning AND Goal Setting

  13. 6-8th Scope & Sequence

  14. 9-12th Scope & Sequence

  15. Data & ICAP Compliance • “District Responsibility” • “The district shall establish specific policies, which must include a method to evaluate the implementation and effectiveness of the standards set forth.” • Data reports will be pulled 2-4 times throughout the year and will be collected via CollegeinColorado and/or Naviance (pay special attention to the yellow boxes) • District and school-specific data is reported to Assistant Superintendents, Instructional Superintendents, and other district personnel, including the school board. • The DPS Board wants to ensure that ALL students have these experiences in compliance with state law.

  16. What do all these expectations have in common?

  18. They are all EXTERNAL motivators • If only focus on the external demands… • Compliance • Actions, deadlines, requirements • Appearance, • Duty or obligation • What you “should” do or what you’re supposed to do • Feel controlled, trapped, pressured, overwhelmed • Creates resentment, frustration, & disconnect between what say and do • Lack the internal drive to meet the demand

  19. Student PEP Comments (Handout)

  20. Think-pair-share • Read student comments (side A) • Discuss guiding question • Read student comments (side B) • Discuss guiding question • Compare and contrast groups of comments

  21. Student CommentsSchool A • “I don’t know what a PEP is.” • “We haven’t really done a lot with PEP at the sophomore year. It would be better if our counselor would help us so later on we could apply for scholarships and in order for us to succeed.” • “It was helpful but haven’t done much with it. I haven’t really talked about it. They sometimes do announce things about it.” • “I don’t know what this is.” • “I don’t really know.” • “I don’t know what a PEP is.”

  22. Guiding Question • What assumptions can you make about this school’s implementation of PEP? • ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

  23. Student CommentsSchool B • “The guidance helps keep goals in mind for after high school.” • “A Personal Education Plan is your plans for after high school and your goals.” • “I have worked with my teachers and counselors to find out what I need to do to get into the schools I want with the classes I need and it helped a lot.” • “Yes, it was helpful definitely for my AP classes that I get for college credit.” • “I think that they did a good job on the PEP. They give us a lot of information on colleges that will fit us. They try to put us in the best classes.” • “The guidance helps keep goals in mind for after high school.”

  32. My Core Values & Beliefs

  33. My Values • Excellence • Hard work • Students first • Integrity

  34. My Beliefs • Belief that all students must graduate college & career ready, with an understanding of the 21st century college & career reality • Believe that all students can be college–ready (experience at Cole/DSST) • Believe that there are multiple pathways and that all students need the same foundational knowledge and skills to be college AND career ready • Believe the problem is when we fall to one extreme or the other (Not all kids can vs. 4-year college of all)

  35. Colleges and Employers want the same qualities and skills in candidates. They also use similar information to evaluate you. • Care with which you filled out the application (e.g. no mistakes) • Academic Record: courses taken, grades earned • Work and Volunteer History • Recommendation letters • Interview (if applicable) • Personal Statement & Essays College Application Job Application • Career with which you filled out the application (e.g. no mistakes) • Academic Record: courses taken, grades earned • Work and Volunteer History • References • Interview

Bachelor’s Degree Reality Check • Bachelor’s degree students’ unemployed or underemployed is estimated at 53.6% (Associated Press, 2012) • “27% of people with post-secondary licenses or certificates-credentials short of an associate’s degree-earn more than the average bachelor’s degree recipient.” (Pathways to Prosperity, 2011) • Demand for middle-skilled professionals is exploding in industries like • Healthcare • Construction • Manufacturing • Natural resources • Mining and installation/repair

  47. New Post Grad Reality (they even made a movie about it) • ALL students, (including “college-bound” students) need career path guidance, career-readiness skills, and an understanding of the 21st century job market. • According to survey conducted by Cuuran Consulting Group (2007), • 75% of those who wanted jobs found jobs within six months of graduation (25% didn’t) • 43% are in a different career field than the one they entered immediately after graduation • 44% are still not sure they are in the right career field Source: Curran Consulting Group: Essential Data on Colleges and Careers, May 7, 2012 by Sheila Curran.
