What is an ECAP?
On 2008, the Arizona State Board of Education approved Education and Career Action Plans for all Arizona students grades 9–12. An ECAP (Education and Career Action Plan) reflects a student’s current plan of coursework, career aspirations, and extended learning opportunities in order to develop the student’s individual academic, career goals and postsecondary plans.

Did you know that if you qualify for assistance through the National School Lunch Program (NLSP), you may eligible to receive fee waivers for the SAT/ACT exams, some College Applications and fee reductions for AP Exams?
From the College Board:
"The College Board fee-waiver service assists qualified, economically disadvantaged students who plan to take the: SAT | SAT Subject Tests | PSAT/NMSQT | AP Exams
A student must be either enrolled in, or eligible to participate in, the National School Lunch Program (NLSP) in order to receive a fee waiver. Schools participating in new federal programs such as Community Eligibility may not be able to use the NLSP criterion to identify and verify individual student fee-waiver eligibility. However, several other criteria or indicators can still be used to confirm eligibility for fee-waiver benefits."
