The Mission of Cornell's Academic and Career Planning is aligned with our school motto "Excel at Cornell." The Academic and Career Planning program provides meaningful opportunities to help students prepare for post-secondary education, employment, community involvement, and life-long success.
How ACP Meets PI 26 Requirements

In order to assist staff in delivering ACP services, the following practices are employed:
CVTC instructors who teach transcripted classes receive ongoing professional development through the college.
Secondary staff receives ongoing training in regards to ACP throughout the school year.
The ACP Committee provides opportunities for Career Cruising trainings during in-service.
Frequent reflections and check-points are built into the ACP process to allow for ACP implementation with fidelity.
Involving our Business Community
Creating and maintaining a relationship with community business partners is promoted by listening to the needs and concerns of employers in our area. Working collaboratively with area school districts, we survey area businesses and host a listening session where they can share how workers ages 16-25 are meeting the challenges of the workforce.
The results of the 2017 survey indicated employees in this age group are strong in technology and math, and weaker in dependability and customer service interaction. This information is used to guide student career preparation. Below are results of the 2017 survey. Employer responses were from Northern Chippewa, Rusk, and Sawyer Counties.
