On December 24, 2018, new EDP, Talent Portfolio and Career Exploration laws took effect across the state. This workshop will support administrators and counselors in making the new EDP and Talent Portfolio requirements work for students 8-12, while maximizing results from the PSAT and SAT. Participants will learn the specifics about these pieces of legislation and how College Board’s Readiness and Success System can be used to address curriculum and instruction, develop academic and career goals as part of a student’s EDP, identify students for intervention and/or honors/AP/IB courses, as well as learn about tools and strategies for working with students and their parents when providing academic and career guidance. This workshop will highlight elements of tools like Career Cruising, XELLO and Kuder Navigator, as well as free resources available through the College Board (MI Big Future and Roadtrip Nation) that can assist schools in meeting the new requirements. 

Participants will...

  • Review statutory requirements for EDP’s, talent portfolios, career exploration and internships
  • Reflect on current practice and needed changes specific to: career exploration; development and updating of EDPs; course offerings and selection; as well as intervention and advanced coursework
  • Explore practical tools, protocols and resources to help assist students and parents in understanding PSAT/SAT data, setting goals and engaging in personalized practice to improve results
  • Review a sample Academic and Career Guidance Checklist for each month of the school year and the creation of a communication plan to share information with stakeholders

What they are saying...

“This practical and engaging workshop not only heightened my awareness of tools and resources available through the College Board, but provided practical strategies and protocols for engaging teachers and students in use of each.”

“I’ve taken time when scheduling students to review their test scores and ask them about their college plans while reviewing their EDP.  I had no idea how much more I could do for students to support their achievement of college and career goals.”
