Individualized Learning Plans (ILPs)
Over the course of the year, each student sets academic goals. These goals are to be met by the end of the year. These goals can be modified according to each student's progress. Students who require intervention or enrichment will receive a District document called the Individualized Learning Plan (ILP). This document contains:
  • goals
  • activities to help students achieve their goals
  • ways progress can be measured
Parents, students, and teachers are required to sign the ILPs. The ILPs are reviewed during conferences.
