Web Based EDP

Students are being asked to develop their Educational Development Plan (EDP). An EDP is a plan of action in which the student identifies career goals and the educational pathways to achieve them. Students will create a web-based EDP. This web-based EDP is ongoing and can be changed at any time. It is available to the student after they leave high school. Students may see their counselor if they have questions concerning their EDP.
