Career plans connect learning experiences across subject areas. The career development model used to create the New York State Career Plan exemplars aligns with the CDOS standards.
The New York State Career Plan records attainment of knowledge and skills. It documents a history of achievement that students build from elementary school to high school. The Career Plan design has also incorporated the transition planning process that is highly desirable for all students and required for students with disabilities.
Students in grades 6-12 can create individual Career Plans with the "My Portfolio" tool found at the New York State Department of Labor's CareerZone web site.
