Background: This report is being presented in compliance with Administrative Policy 7.32, Comprehensive School Counseling Program, which requires a report on comprehensive school counseling program activities to improve postsecondary outcomes must be provided to the Board of Directors every October.

During the 2017-2018 school year, the comprehensive school counseling program implemented and collaborated on a number of activities and strategies to increase postsecondary outcomes for students in Milwaukee Public Schools. Additionally, 2017-2018 was the first year of the statewide requirement for all students in public schools to engage in Academic and Career Planning (ACP).
