Career Exploration

Alaska Career Information Systems (AKCIS) is a free tool students can use to explore Careers, Schools, Scholarships and more. Login to Powerschool to access your AKCIS account.

Why AKCIS?

Each middle and high school student will develop a “Personal Learning and Career Plan” (PLCP) based on identified Career Pathways and areas of study. Students who focus on a Career Pathway can acquire the skills necessary for entry into careers with a high potential for financial growth and increased levels of engagement. Each student’s PLCP will utilize the Alaska Career Information System electronic portfolio in planning their education giving them the tools for a successful future in a chosen career. Each school year the students are required to go through an AKCIS career lesson and will update their PLCP. 

In the 2018-19 School Year

  • 85% of KPBSD students in grades 7-12 have an established PLCP in AKCIS/PowerSchool and have updated it during the 18-19 school year.
  • 85% of KPBSD Students have selected education plans beyond high school (below – left)
  • 90% of KPBSD Students have selected at least 1 Career Cluster of Interest (below – right)
