Guidance to uploading ECAP in EMAC
EMAC Portal User Guide – Use this guide as an overview of EMAC.
Step 1: Make sure the person who is going to upload the documents has an ADE Connect account and is assigned an EMAC user in the system. The following guidance will walk you through these steps if they are not set up in ADE Connect and/or EMAC
(If you are still unable to figure out how to assign it, please email Amanda Nolasco at [email protected] with the full name of the school(s) and the person who needs to be assigned the task).
Step 2: From the district/charter entity dashboard, click on the tab titled “School Schedule on the top blue bar. When the drop down appears, only put in the year and the monitoring program. Take out the dates and then hit search. This will pull up where you can upload the documents.
Step 3: Each school must complete the online survey and upload the implementation plan for task 1. Each school must upload the student sample for task 2. If your school is a registered user for My Future AZ, you do not have to submit the student sample. When you upload the documents, please make sure you complete all 3 steps: select file, upload, and then submit for review.
If you still need assistance, please email Amanda Nolasco at [email protected].
We are excited to announce The Arizona Department of Education's adoption of My Future AZ as the recommended ECAP replacement tool for AzCIS. My Future AZ utilizes proven technology and infrastructure from Pipeline AZ, an Arizona career development and job skills exploration platform, to offer students comprehensive resources and support to plan for their future careers. If you are interested in using My Future AZ as your ECAP tool and would like to have access to student accounts and individualize certain aspects of the platform, please email Amanda Nolasco at [email protected].
Upcoming Trainings – Every month ADE will host virtual trainings that will demo the My Future AZ platform, review the types of accounts available, and show how a district/charter/school can easily set up to start using the program. All trainings will take place on the last Tuesday of each month from 9:00 am – 10:00 am. We are currently accepting registrations for trainings from April – July.

What is an ECAP?
On February 25, 2008 the Arizona State Board of Education approved Education and Career Action Plans for all Arizona students grades 9-12. An ECAP (Education and Career Action Plan) reflects a student’s current plan of coursework, career aspirations, and extended learning opportunities in order to develop the student’s individual academic, career goals and postsecondary plans.
Why is an ECAP important?
We as educators believe we should integrate an Education and Career Action Plan (ECAP) process into all facets of the school experience. Students, who have opportunities to identify interests, skills, and strengths and then apply that knowledge to create their own ECAP, transition more seamlessly into postsecondary and work place requirements.
