To set the Four Year Plan (FYP) details and notes. Those details may include:
- Name the plan, as a student can have more than one plan, they may want to ensure the plan name is unique.
- Career Clusters contain occupations in the same field of work that require similar skills. These can be use to help focus education plans towards obtaining the necessary knowledge, competencies, and training for success in a particular career pathway.
- Job Preference is the occupation associated to the broader career cluster. This can help narrow the field of study for the student.
- Student Notes is a place to allow the student to record any free form notes about their FYP.
- Educator Notes is a place for students to see the notes an Educator (usually a counselor) has entered about the students FYP.
Students can have more than one FYP, so the name should includes some detail of the default plan it was created from, such as 'Highly Selective', 'Two and Four Year Technical College', or 'Diploma'.
Choose the career cluster from the drop down menu provided. If the district uses WOIS / The Career Information Service and the student has taken an assessment, the career clusters associated to their highest interests are imported from their WOIS portfolio, those careers will be displayed prominently under 'My Career Interests'.
While the rest of the possible Career Path choices are also displayed.
The job or occupation the student is interested can be entered in one of two ways:
- Text input: this is a free form text box that allows the user to type in any occupation
- Select list: this allows the user to choose a job or occupation from a list that is filtered by the career cluster chosen.
If the district uses WOIS / The Career Information Service and the student has saved any jobs in the Career Research of their WOIS portfolio, those jobs will be displayed prominently under 'My Saved Jobs'.
Student can enter free form notes about their FYP. Only users with a Person Role of 'Student' can enter notes in this text box. Other users can see the notes entered by the student, but not change them.
Educators, such as counselors, or any other Educator who has access to the students FYP, can enter free form notes about the students FYP. Here is where the student can view those notes.
