ECAP Implementation Toolkit

Exciting news! The Arizona ECAP Implementation Administrative Toolkit is now live!

This document is designed for district and site-level administrators and aims to achieve deeper and wider ECAP implementation. The Toolkit provides in-depth information on the ECAP process, how to get started in developing and implementing a quality ECAP process, and specific strategies for achieving whole-school buy-in, engaging families in the ECAP process, and collaborating with community and business partners. Best practices from leading research on individual learning plans and Arizona ECAP exemplar schools can be found throughout the Toolkit. Additionally, the toolkit includes links to resources, templates, research, and helpful websites.

Stay tuned, as this toolkit will continually be updated to include the latest research and innovative practices that schools from around the state are using to prepare their students for college, career, and life!


The toolkit can be found by clicking the Counselor & Educators button on the ECAP homepage, then clicking the Templates, Examples, Samples, and Tools link.
