Career Development & EDP Process What is an EDP? An Educational Development Plan (EDP) is an online document that allows students to begin the process of career exploration and document their educational goals. The EDP includes an area for students to record their academic accomplishments, interests, and experiences as they move from 8th to 12th grade. The EDP is an electronic system for students to “hold on to” and “showcase” their accomplishments and begin to build a resume. Through a Genesee Intermediate School District (GISD) grant, additional funding is provided to merge career exploration and the creation of an individual EDP into core curriculum areas, bringing real-world relevance and building connections between daily academic work to a students career interest. Mt. Morris students beginning in the 8th grade are provided the experience of taking the ACT Explore. In addition, 9th grade students complete the ACT Plan, and 10th grade students take the Retired ACT. These assessments are used to help determine students career & college readiness, and more importantly prepare them for the state-required ACT/MME test completed as 11th graders. Students begin the career exploration process in 8th grade and continue through their senior year by presenting a Senior Exit Project. EDP development begins in the 8th grade. Interests and aptitudes are identified through many career interest inventory online assessments. Students identity career pathways through research and assessment results, then plan their 4-year class schedule using developed short and long term goals developed in their English classes as a guide. Students may change their career pathway(s) as their interests and educational development changes. All 8th through 12th grade students have the opportunity to participate in Computer/Career Development Essentials courses. As well as, at the HS level, Career & Technical Educational courses are offered right at EAJ High School. Family Consumer Sciences, Parenting & Child Development, Culinary Arts, Business/Office Administration, Sales & Marketing, Accounting, to qualifying students. Many programs offer College Articulated Credit by students successfully completing the HS CTE program. Post-Secondary partners include: Mott College, Davenport University, ITT and Baker College. The High School offers Advanced Placement courses and the Jr. High offers Algebra I and Spanish I in which students are provided the opportunity to earn High School credit.
