Educational Development Plan (EDP)
An educational development plan documents an ongoing process in which a learner identifies both career goals and a plan of action to achieve them.
EDPs must be developed for all 7th grade students and reviewed annually. This state requirement became effective in 2006-07 and is on-going.
EDP development must include parent, counselor and principal or designee's signature.
All modifications to the student's personal curriculum plan must be supported by their EDP.
