At this time students can create accounts individually by following simple instructions at myfutureaz.pipelineaz.com. We are working on a process for batch uploads for high schools, but it is currently not available. Here is the information a student must provide to register for an account:
- First Name
- Last Name

- Zip code (Can be school or home ZIP code)
Once they register, they will have the opportunity to add more information to their profile.

If your school would like to be a part of the CFA/ABEC collaborative and receive support for onboarding and implementation, please contact either:

SY20-21 ECAP Submission
ECAP Moving Forward Memo
What is an ECAP?
On February 25, 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.
Why is an ECAP important?
We as educators believe we should integrate an Education and Career Action Plan (ECAP) process into all facets of the school experience. Students, who have opportunities to identify interests, skills, and strengths and then apply that knowledge to create their own ECAP, transition more seamlessly into postsecondary and work place requirements.
