This letter contains important information about Individual Career and Academic Plans (ICAPs). Every 7th through 12th grade student in Moore Public Schools will have an ICAP. Parents and families play an important role in helping children plan for and reach their postsecondary goals.
What is ICAP?
Our district has decided to focus our attention on ICAPs. We want to make this plan available to every student beginning in the seventh grade. ICAP is an individualized plan that is developed by students and their parents or guardians, in collaboration with school counselors and educators. The ICAP will help students:
- establish personalized academic and career goals
- explore postsecondary career and educational opportunities
- align course work and curriculum
- apply to postsecondary institutions
- secure financial aid
- enter the workforce or school
Why are we writing parents and families now?
During a traditional school year, counselors meet with seventh- and eighth-grade students to renew their commitment to and ownership of their ICAPs. For students who are attending school virtually, we invite them to participate in the same activities. Students will utilize these tools to explore interests, careers, colleges, scholarships and more.
