Educational Development Plan (EDP)

  • What is an Educational Development Plan (EDP)?

    An Educational Development Plan (EDP) is a document showing a student’s current interests, abilities, and career pathways.  It is more comprehensive than a schedule of classes because it includes information a student can use to make wise choices about post secondary options.

    Why have an EDP?

    The State of Michigan requires that students must be given the opportunity to create an EDP beginning in the 7th grade and revises it appropriately throughout high school.  An EDP is designed to assist students to identify career development goals as they relate to academic requirements, which may be fulfilled through career and technical education.

    How can students start/update their EDP?

    Counselors meet with all classes to instruct students on updating their EDP annually.  The essential elements for updating an EDP are exploring careers, projected job openings, educational/training goals, career interest surveys,  activities, experiences, and plans of action.

    Students are welcomed and encouraged to explore Xello on their own time.
