Academic & Career Planning

Academic and Career Planning (ACP)

Chilton School District is preparing our students for life after high school starting in fifth grade. Students begin their Academic and Career Planning utilizing our parents and community to take the first steps towards education into careers. We follow a set plan that gives students real life experiences, grounded with set expectations in each grade level. Focused meetings with students, parents, and school counselors maintain the focus of success after high school. These items combined with our vision to continue our growth toward an integrated, whole-school program that addresses our students needs in a developmentally appropriate timeframe as they progress through their educational journey will set all students up for success. We always look forward to continue growth and welcome any support you are willing to offer.

Nominations need to be submitted by February 4, 2022.  Following the submission deadline, a panel of judges will review each nomination to determine finalists.  These finalists will then be asked to elaborate on the work outlined in the nomination.  The judges will then select the award recipients in each of the five categories.
