ILP Conferences

September 14, 2017 2:51 pm

Individual Learning Plan conferences are being held on 9/20 and 10/4 this year. Please do not arrive before 12:55pm in order to allow cars and busses to smoothly exit from the school and to free-up parking spaces for you. Here is some information about the ILP process that I have copied from our Student and Family Handbook:

An Individual Learning Plan (ILP) is a document that articulates goals for the student and strategies that can be used to attain those goals.  The document takes a whole child perspective, also describing the student’s strengths, interests, personal attributes and accomplishments. Every student has an ILP which is used by students, parents/guardians, teachers and advisors.  Each person should do regular check-ins on the plan.  Parents and Guardians are encouraged to keep a copy visible at home, students should maintain a copy in their binder, teachers should focus attention on these goals during classes and advisors should set up regular times to check in with students about their goals.

ILPs are developed in the fall during Parent/Guardian-Student-Teacher ILP conferences.  At the conference, Parents/Guardians, student and advisor (along with advice from teachers) discuss and come to consensus on attainable and measurable goals for the student.  Along with goals, strategies for achieving those goals are discussed.
