Michigan Career Development Model
The Michigan Career Development Model (MI CDM) is designed to provide all students (K-12) in the Michigan educational system with the necessary knowledge and skills for success in a career of their choice and lifelong learning.
Post-Graduation Opportunities Information Packet
The Michigan Department of Education (MDE) has partnered with the Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity (LEO) to enhance the Pathfinder Resources page with organized resources that will help students and their families review college information, find financial aid information, get a job, serve their community or country, assess their skills if unsure of their path, and explore opportunities to earn college credit or receive training in high school.
To comply with MCL 380.1293, a district, intermediate school district, public school academy, and nonpublic school shall disseminate the Pathfinder Resources Page link to pupils in grades 8-12 by October 1 of each school year. Resources below can support the engagement of students and their families in the creation and continued review of robust Education Development plans.
