Attention all Breathitt High School Students and Parents:
The ACE computer program (kedc.ace.org) is the platform that will be used to implement individualized learning plans (ILP) and replace career cruising. An ILP is a set of activities that helps students take charge of their future. It does this by connecting what students do in high school with their college, job, and career goals. This way, students graduate with the PRACTICAL knowledge and skills they need to build the future they want!
When working on Ace, students can create an experience that empowers them to take charge of their future. Students can begin with their interests and career surveys. This will help match them with potential careers they may want to pursue. It will give them detailed information, requirements, and skills needed as well as potential income they may be able to earn in the future. The Ace program will also allow students to showcase their skills in several areas ranging from academics to leadership to civics. Students can upload letters of recommendations, videos, and other documentation to the “my backpack” area of the program, and these can be used to create resumes for future employers. Students can earn different levels of achievement ranging from silver to gold to platinum. Students can complete the required criteria using ACE to help earn the Work Ethics Seal upon graduation.
Parental involvement is important and ACE allows for parents to review their child’s progress in the program yearly.
