PI-26 is legislation that requires Academic and Career Planning for all students in grades 6-12 to take place in all public schools in the State of Wisconsin beginning with the 2017-2018 school year.
At Wilmot Union High School, we are proud to report that we and our K-8 feeder schools have implemented Academic and Career Planning for many years and therefore already have a strong foundation on which to develop these mandated Academic and Career Plans.

ACPs begin at our feeder schools and are then transferred to Wilmot.

At Wilmot, students will be involved in a variety of activities to fully develop their ACPs:

  • In Freshman Conferences, all Freshmen and their parents will review their ACP developed in grades 6-8 and discuss the importance of updating the plan throughout their high school career.
  • Counselors will be meeting with Sophomore groups to have them update/redo some of the academic and career related assessments in their ACPs. In addition, all Sophomores will develop a Personal Statement Paper in their English class and upload it to their ACP.
  • In Junior Conferences, all Juniors and their parents will review and update their ACPs.
  • Seniors will develop a College Essay/Career Plan Paper in their Senior Literature and Composition class and upload it to their ACP. In addition to receiving a financially focused post secondary planning presentation in their Financial Literacy class, all Seniors will complete a Financial Aid Selector program which will be uploaded to their ACP. The topic of how to use their ACP beyond high school will also be discussed.

Families play an important role in the process of helping their youth become college and career ready. We strongly encourage ongoing family discussions regarding your student’s academic/career goals and plans.  
If you have any questions, please see your student's counselor.

Senior Awards Night
Wilmot Union High School will be recognizing the outstanding accomplishments of the students in the Class of 2017 at Senior Awards Night on Wednesday, May 24th, at 6:30 p.m. in the auditorium. All family members are invited to attend a small reception at 6:00 p.m. in the commons prior to the 6:30 awards presentation. Please join us to acknowledge and support the great accomplishments of our students.  It is important that you inform Mrs. Sweatman in the student services office of any scholarships/awards that your student has been awarded, from school organizations and outside organizations, in order to be recognized at Senior Awards Night.
