 PWR Practices


Practitioners from districts, schools, and organizations have submitted their promising practices for the PWR Playbook. Copy, adapt, and share them! Each practice strives to meet the following criteria:

  • Comprehensive, integrated, high quality, equitable
  • Whole teams are involved
  • Integrated through curriculum and grade levels
  • Shared responsibility
  • Evidence that the process is empowering to students
  • Easy to adopt/adapt
  • Aligned to Postsecondary and Workforce Readiness (PWR) opportunities
  • Measurable

Searchable Database

This searchable database includes processes, implementation action steps, resources, and tools that schools and districts have developed 1) to create/refine their ICAP process and 2) to develop systems that empower students to own their ICAP process and achieve Postsecondary and Workforce Readiness.

Please contact Robin Russel to find out how to submit your practice(s).
