Individual Graduation Plans Coming Home Friday

In December 8th grade students completed Individual Graduation Plans (IGP).  This was only step one of a lengthy process that will be incomplete until they are ready to graduate high school.  Parent copies will be coming home with report cards Friday.  A sample is below.

Highlights include:
  • Career Cluster and learning style results from the Career Cruising activities.
  • A graph of the core classes required to graduate (actual level of classes will be determined later in the year, such as on level, advanced, etc).
  • High school credits earned in middle school for students taking those classes.
  • Initial concentration interests (Fine Arts, Foreign Languages, and/or Career Pathways).
  • The number of free electives left after the concentration selections.
  • A check box indicating students understand the Advanced Placement and Dual Enrollment opportunities enabling them to earn college credit while still in high school.

Important points for parents to remember:

  • This is only a very rough draft in the process and will be revised countless times between now and when students graduate (everything on the page is subject to change).
  • The purpose of the IGP on this level is to merely introduce the students to graduation requirements, present options of course studies available to them, and to get them thinking about what their interests are so they have already given the matter consideration prior to selecting high school electives in early February.
  • Course specifics will be added to the IGP early in Freshman year once students receive finalized schedules.  That is the next opportunity to make changes to the plan.
  • Relax and enjoy an exciting time in the life of your students.
