PEP Template 2020: This template was designed by WVDE staff to assist counties/schools in developing a new template or revising their current ISTP template to align with PEP and graduation requirements. This is an optional format. Schools may revise their old templates or create their own templates:
PEP Signature page (Schools must have a process to ensure every student updates the PEP annually. PEPS must have a Signature/process page documenting the involvement of the counselor, advisor, student by securing the signature of PEP development participants. This is a sample signature page if a paper format is being used. Additionally, this form will document student data (inventories, assessments, career exploration activities, etc.) used to guide PEP development.)
