ACP Statement

Academic and Career Planning (ACP) at Chilton Public Schools

Academic and Career Planning is currently implemented in many of our content areas and curriculum.  Our vision in the Chilton School District is to continue our growth toward an integrated, whole-school program that addresses our students’ needs in a developmentally appropriate timeframe as they progress through middle school, and into high school.

Career Cruising is a state sponsored career development website.  Students that attend Chilton School District work with this site on a regular basis starting in grade six and continue until graduation.  Student work is monitored and can be edited and changed as their interests and abilities develop.  Career Cruising provides a framework and guide for students in their Academic and Career Planning.
