Educational Development Plan
Education Development Plan (EDP) is a personal document in which a student identifies career goals, lists interests and skills in line with meeting those goals, and records the experiences, education, and accomplishments he or she wants to pursue to successfully attain them. The purpose of the EDP is to provide every student with an ongoing and periodically updated record of career planning that will serve as a guide for entering a career of choice. Students in Michigan are required to develop an EDP in the seventh grade. North Muskegon Public Schools contracts with Career Cruising to house student EDPs which include their 4-year course plan.
