Oklahoma Students Set Path Toward Career Goals

With the start of the 2019-2020, all Oklahoma public school students will have access to Individual Career Academic Planning (ICAP) to help each student establish career goals and a path to meet them. The program has been in pilot phase for two years and is now available to students statewide.

“We can help them be successful if provided the appropriate opportunities to plan for life after high school,” state schools Superintendent Joy Hofmeister said. “We want them to have goals, and we want them to be able to achieve them. Oklahoma’s future depends on students who are prepared today for the specialized workforce of tomorrow.”

The program begins at the elementary stage by teaching career readiness such as interpersonal skills and problem solving. In middle and high schools, students will complete career and college interest surveys, write post-secondary and workforce goals and take courses to move them toward their goals. ICAP will also provide students with internship, mentorship and job shadowing opportunities.
