Franklin Teaching ECAP Class

Posted by Community Relations Department on 8/29/2012

Franklin’s Professional Development Specialist Heidi Bonfante developed and is teaching a professional development/professional growth class for the ECAP, the state’s Education and Career Action Plan.    An ECAP reflects a student’s current plan of coursework, career aspirations, and extended learning opportunities in order to develop the student’s individual academic and career goals.  The course explores the requirements of and resources available through ECAP.  Bonfante pursued the project with the support of the Arizona Department of Education, and Northern Arizona offers it as a graduate elective for educators.  Last semester, 36 Phoenix Union faculty and staff participated in the pilot class.  NAU will again offer the online class this semester.  Bonfante is   one of the District’s National Board Certified teachers, and an Arizona Master/Mentor Teacher.
